Bullaren, was built in 1979 by Gotaverken, Arendal , Norway for Rederi A/B Transatlantic [RABT], which, at the time, was owned by Brostroms, also of Sweden. It was nominally transferred briefly to its Swedish America Line as Vindafjord in 1981, then chartered out, I think to Wilhlemsen, in 1981 as Tarifa, then returned to RABT operation in 1983 as Bullaren. In 1984 it was sold to Cie Navale Transatlantique as Saint Roland, to Eburnea as Grand Basssam in 1992, then to SCAC Delmas Vieljeux in 1995 as Robert Delmas, renamed Robert then Roxane Delmas the same year and ended up in 2005 as Marienborg for Wedellsborg (Nordana). It finally arrived in Alang 2012-11-09 where it was broken up.

More Scandinavian content came from these owners. I don't know much about them or why their ship was at pier 36 in 1980, however it was an odd enough ship to warrant some notice.
The ship is also still in service, having been sold in 84: Erica and 87: Jolly Arancione, and in 96: Nicolas A. It is still sailing with that name under the Greek flag. From photos on the net, it seems to be trading to Egypt, and appears unchanged.
