The jury in the case of eight men accused of trying to smuggle £36m worth of cannabis resin into the UK has retired to consider its verdicts.
The four Serbian, two Israeli and two Ukrainian men were arrested six days after the ocean-going tug Abbira berthed in Southampton last year.
A search by customs and police teams found 12.5 tonnes of the Class B drug.
The eight men deny drug smuggling at Winchester Crown Court. Four other men have already pleaded guilty.
The defendants are – Serbian nationals Goran Otovic, 54, Dragan Stankovic, 54, Dusan Mileusnic, 49, and Negovan Jovanovic, 58.
Also appearing are Israeli nationals Moshe Kedar, 81, and Mordechai Hersh, 67, and Ukrainian nationals Yaroslav Ksenzovets, 35, and Sergiy Khodos, 26.
The four men who have already pleaded guilty are Mohinder Rai, 35, Baljinder Rai, 31, Anjum Nazir, 39, all from Leicester, and Israeli national Yehezkel Srebro, 57.
They will be sentenced at a later date.
The jury was sent home on Wednesday and will resume deliberations on Thursday.
