She was completed at the Moss Rosenburg yard in Norway in 1971 and was taken over by David Macbrayne during fitting out. They later became Caledonian Macbrayne.

She seems to be a tough old bird , last time I heard she was around Fiji still with her name.

SUILVEN: Bligh Water Shipping Ltd - Fiji Islands.
From Suva to Vanuabalavu , where she is described as "very comfortable for passengers in the rough inter-island waters" - presumably they islanders will be keen to keep her then. Suilven is still her name.
