Coastlines CL-SA13 M T Haven, damaged VLCC, 1991 1/1250
New for 2014! In 1991, the M T Haven had just off-loaded part of her full load of crude oil to an off-shore facility when there was a large explosion and fire aboard. The ship burned for 3 days off Genoa and, despite an attempt to tow her inshore, she broke up and sank polluting most of the Mediterranean coast from the French Riviera to Genoa. The model shows the ship shortly before the bow sank.
The M T Haven (ex-Amoco Milford Haven) was already infamous because she was a sistership to the Amoco Cadiz and she had earlier been hit by an Iranian missile in the Arabian Gulf. To this day, the stern section is the largest wreck dive site in the Mediterranean. The two parts of the model should be displayed in line with a bow to stern measurement of 240mm.
