The Elliot was a cargo ship of 2,870 GRT built at Euskalduna Shipyard (Yard No. 157), Olaveaga, Spain. She was originally named ASK and was flagged as a Norwegian vessel. Launched 20 June 1962, she was completed the following year with a length of 93.7 meters, beam of 14.8 meters, with a single diesel engine and shaft for a speed of 12.5 knots.
In 1973 the ship was renamed Zepmare and renamed again in 1974 as the Jutland (Miramar incorrectly spelled this name as Juetland on their website). Sometime afterwards, the ship was sold to the Ugars Marine Co., Panama, and in 1980 was renamed the Elliot.
On 11 July 1984, the ship was steaming south in the Gulf of Suez with a 3500 ton cargo of chickpeas when she struck the reef just north of Ras Dib. The ship then sank in approximately 10-meters of water. No loss of life reported.
