The vessel is actually located near Rosario Port, Parana River, Argentina. A suitable alternative, should you have a firm buyer, would be to deliver the vessel at Montevideo Port. Therefore, the internal passage by the Parana River, in Argentinean internal waters, would be arranged by Owners. That way, prospective buyers won’t have to deal with the local authorities.
