Ships and Harbours
No: 14476   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 1985   Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Japan   Country: The Netherlands

One of a series of large general cargo ships for the Blue Funnel Line/ Ocean Group she was completed by Mitsubishi at Nagasaki in 1977. I took this at Rotterdam in 1985.
In 1980 she became BARBER MENESTHEUS for charter work and had reverted to her own name again when I took this. She subsequently received many different names finally becoming KING SPIRIT in 2007. She is possibly still sailing.

There were 4 ships built as a replacement order for two BP R class VLCCs for bareboat charter to Ocean Fleets.
