Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

From the Middle East, to China, where the world's largest concrete ship has been dismantled after spending four decades stranded on a riverbank. The Gu Tian was abandoned shortly after her maiden voyage in 1974 and has since become a home to squatters and is a local tourist attraction in Fuzhou, the capital of southeast China's Fujian Province. Work to destroy the 3,000 ton concrete boat began in November last year and is finally coming to a close this week.
