The incident involved Vanuatu-flagged ANT, with thirteen foreign crew, and the Singapore-flagged cargo ship Potentia, with nineteen on board.

Ant is owned by Turkey-based Ant Shipping and Trading, according to Equasis data. The ship was recently inspected in Egypt on May 30, with the inspection revealing that the ship had a malfunctioning bridge navigation watch alarm system.
