CPA removes historic shipwreck from Parera
WILLEMSTAD - Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) recently started a major project of removing the ship wreck of the Richard Bordo from Parera in Port Willemstad to make room for development.
The general cargo ship, which was built in 1950, has been lying in the port since 1980. The name that appeared on the wreck was “Prince of Malta”, which was painted on its back in 1993 when the ship was used in the movie “Curaҫao” that was filmed here.
The movie, which aired on Showtime, starred George C. Scott and is still available online for those interested. The dismantling of the Richard Bordo will take a couple of months to be finalized.
