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.

Ships and Harbours
 
No: 18925   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 1976   Manufacturer: Austin & Pickersgill, United Kingdom   Country: United Kingdom
CITY OF EXETER of 1974

An altogether different ship to her predecessor. An SD14 she was built by Austin and Pickersgill at Sunderland as P&O;'s STRATHDARE and sold to Ellerman in 1975. This was taken at Bowling on the Clyde, outbound from Glasgow in March 1976.
They did not keep her for long- indeed a circular was sent out to staff apologising for the standard of accommodation- and in 1980 she was sold and became PHOEVOS. As NIKOLAOS S. she is possibly still sailing.
