Pasha Bulka

The Famous Pasha Bulker

Pasha Bulker, now known as MV Drake, was a bulk carrier being run by the shipping company Lauritzen Bulkers. In 2007, it ran on shore after not heeding a major storm warning together with ten other vessels on Nobby’s Beach in Newcastle. While it was on ground, the engine room was still in full operation. Both of its anchors were still secured in the hawsepipe, which gave the impression that the ship’s captain did not observe proper precautionary measures. Being situated on the famous Nobby’s Beach near the Newcastle Central Business District made it a popular tourist destination while it was on ground.
