Silja Line’s former WELLAMO (1975) was anchored in the beautiful waters of the Vietnamese Van Phong Bay (Khanh Hoa) since 2010. She was used as a hotel ship. She was under tow to Haiphong for overhaul when she was hit by typhoon Damrey. She sank on November 4 in the Quy Nhon Sea, four nautical miles southeast of Quy Nhon. In total 11 bodies have been found on several ships that sank because of the same typhoon.
WELLAMO has served companies as DFDS (DANA GLORIA, KING OF SCANDINAVIA), Color Line (COLOR VIKING) and Fjord Line (JUPITER), and has been lengthened in 1988 .
