K Line bulker saves 45 fishermen near Sri Lanka

A K Line managed Amver ship rescued 45 fishermen after being diverted by Australian Maritime Safety Authority officials on October 13, 2012 approximately 270 miles south east of Sri Lanka.

The 738 foot Singapore flagged bulk carrier, M/V Pinnacle Bliss, was diverted by RCC Australia and safely embarked the fishermen after an unknown distress.

The Pinnacle Bliss is taking the fishermen to Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates where they will be allowed to return home.

The Pinnacle Bliss enrolled in Amver on July 18, 2011 and has earned one award for participation.
