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.

EUROPA on the Forth

HAPAG Lloyd's EUROPA coming under the Forth Bridges in Scotland outbound on a cruise in July 1979.
She was built at the Royal Schelde yard at Flushing in 1953 and was sold in 1965 upon the launch of her replacement from the John Brown yard at Clydebank.
Sold again in 1981 she became COLUMBUS C and sadly grounded at Cadiz in 1984 being taken to Barcelona for scrap in 1985.
