A 39-year-old cargo ship that listed in front of running cameras and then sunk in Turkey in September has been refloated and is about to head to the country’s demolition capital of Aliaga.

The general directorate of shipping at Turkey’s transport ministry tweeted early on Tuesday that the 4,300-dwt Sea Eagle (built 1984) was made afloat on 2 January.

“The said ship will be taken to the Aliaga shipbreaking area for recycling,” the government agency said.
