Tell Me More
It had launched in January, 2018 and sank on 25th May, 2018. According to the news reported there was a shift in anchor because of the weather change and change in currents. Been around only for 5 months sank on 25th May cause of a shift in anchorage and the anchor got hit by rock. There were atleast 15 people of the staff who were on the ship at that time but were rescued safely. There are speculations that due to the big tidal waves of Mekuni Cyclone the anchor lost its control and shifted. It was in the news that a vessel should only be permitted until it's 30yrs old where as Ark was a 50yr old vessel.

What Else
