It was originally built in 1967 – making it now 54 years old !

In those days it was called the ‘Tyro’ and was operated by the Dutch.

We are currently cooperating with other European welfare organisations to see if we can obtain any more current info as to why the Elbeik is moored off Cyprus. 

Further updates to come when we have more.
