BRONTE

Super SD14 for Lamport and Holt loading for her maiden voyage in Glasgow in February 1979. She was built as all SD14s were, at Sunderland by Austin and Pickersgill at the Southwick yard.
She only had 4 years with L&H; before being sold to Chinese interests and renamed AN DONG JIANG and as far as I am aware is still sailing under that name.

Just to correct your comment that all SD14s were built at the Austin and Pickersgill yard, the majority of them were but they were also built at Bartrams Sunderland, Smiths Dock Middlesborough, under licence in Brazil and also I think a couple in a Scottish yard....maybe Scot lithgow.
