[...] the Courbet, under NATO command, was carrying out a mission to check whether the Turkish vessel Cirkin was smuggling arms to Libya after it turned off its transponder, failed to identify itself and did not divulge its final destination. (Reuters, 17 June 2020)

You can find information for m/v Cirkin on it's public page on Shipfix or, if you are already a Shipfix Subscriber, you can see the vessel's full particulars and trading history in our vessel directory. The 4,476 DWT dry cargo vessel was build in 1980 and is currently registered in Zanzibar. The latest information available shows that it is operated by Avrasya Shipping in Turkey.
