Izmir Ship Recycling Co., a Turkish demolition company, bought the boat in 2012 for $3.3 million to scrap it, but defaulted on its payments. The ship has since sitting at a dock in Genoa, Italy, and on Aug. 8, endured a hard journey to Turkey through a violent storm, only to meet its end.

Called the Pacific Princess when it was on the long-running comedy, the 19,903-ton, 600-passenger ship was built in 1971 for Flagship Cruises. It was known as “The Love Boat” from 1977-1986, and now the 42-year-old vessel will be stripped for its metal and parts, the report said.
