The little coaster, flying the Belgian flag, had arrived the previous day with a cargo from Malaga. MARIABURG, which was built in 1985, has a deadweight of 1,552 tonnes and is 75.2 metres long. Built by Koetter-Werft at Haren-Ems in Germany, she was originally named BETA, becoming in 1998 ROBETA, and in 2006 KEVIN-S. She was given her present name in 2008. Crew management is by Wellteam Marine, and she is operated by Bugge Shipping.
