Ship No 437

The steam ship CICERO was part of another order from the Ellerman Wilson Line, this order was for three of the latest in steamer cargo/passenger type ships, and it must be said (In my humble opinion) they were amongst the finest looking vessels to be launched from the Leith yard of Henry Robb.

With her distinctive lines she was 2499 tons of fine looking ship, at 290 feet between perpendicular’s and with a beam of 48 feet and 6 inches, with design draught at 27 feet, she was a well proportioned vessel.

She was launched from the Henry Robb shipyard on 30th of June 1954.

You will be able to read a lot more about this and the other ships built in Leith, when the new website is ready, so keep checking back.
