The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

AMAZON

One of three sisters, the Three Graces, she was completed by Harland and Wolff at Belfast in 1959 for Royal Mail Lines. Her sisters were ARAGON and ARLANZA.
This photo was taken by the late Donald Robertson, some of whose collection was passed on to me in Southampton Water in 1967.
In the late 1960s, AMAZON was sold to Shaw Savill and renamed AKAROA. In 1971 she underwent a tragic conversion to a vehicles carrier and was renamed HUAL AKARITA going to breakers as AKARITA in 1982.
