Maria by T. Diedrich
        This vessel has a very long history. She was more than 70 years under Spanish flag and nowadays is preserved as an historical site in the United Kingdom. She was built on 1890 as Robin, name that she has recovered as well as her original design. She was bought on 1900 by Blanco Hermanos, being then renamed Maria, name that kept during all the time that she was registered in Spain. She was bought by Hijos de Ángel Pérez on 1914 and during 52 years she was owned by this company, being sold on 1966 to Sota Poveda. On 1974 she was sold to a British association and restaured in several steps. Now she is in London, at Royal Victory Dock, where she is on top of a pontoon for better preservation.
