Even though she was built as recently as 1988, the bulk carrier Mint Condition -- renamed Flag Emma in June 2002 -- has already had seven different names in her short life. Launched from the yards of Sasebo Heavy Industries Ltd. on Kyushu Island, Japan, as Topaz, she took the name Mint Condition when purchased by new owners in July 1997. Registered at 36,120 tons gross (23,035 net and 68,600 deadweight), she measures 224 metres in length with a 32 metre beam and is powered by 2 single-acting 5-cylinder engines by Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries of Aioi (Japan) which give her a service speed of 14 knots. Designed with seven holds for a variety of dry bulk cargoes, she has capacity for 81,337 cubic metres of grain. After two years as Mint Condition, she became Prime Condition in October 1999 and then Amstel in May 2001 prior to assuming her current name earlier this year.
