I was doing some research and I noticed the AIS data for the dead vessel MV Prestige (IMO 7372141 & call sign C6MN6) is being associated with an identical named Belgium flagged inland bulk vessel.
The MV Prestige was a Aframax crude oil tanker that broke in half and sunk on 19 November 2002 and spilled 17 million gallons of oil.
It appears the vessel now showing does not have an IMO number but does have an ENI number of 06105034-B. Its MMSI is 205414190 and call sign OT4414.
I checked the IMO database and the IMO number for the dead vessel is correct.
