One of the ships that used to call at Mgarr Harbour, Gozo was the 70 metre long coaster MURAT HACIBEKIROGLU II. She was seen several times in our territorial waters calling both Valletta (Grand Harbour) and Marsamxett Harbour ( Old Medserv Base).
She was built in Turkey in 1984 by Dearsan Shipyard at Istanbul where she was homeported too as RECAI BURSALIOGLU trading until August 1990 where she was renamed as MURAT HACIBEKIROGLU II still with another Turkish owner.
