MS European Gateway was a roll-on roll-off (RORO) car and passenger ferry built in 1975, originally owned and operated by Townsend Thoresen. On 19 December 1982, she capsized following a collision with Speedlink Vanguard off Harwich, settling on a sandbank. The ship had 34 passengers and 36 crew at the time. Six people were killed in the capsizing.[2] She was subsequently refloated and repaired and served the Greek Islands as Penelope, until 2013 when she was scrapped at the Port of Piraeus.[3]
