Ship No 472

The Motor Vessel RAPALLO was the second in the three ship order from the Ellerman Wilson Line, a larger ship than AARO and another beautiful looking ship.

She was a single screw diesel cargo vessel, larger than the M.V.AARO at 3400 Grt, she was 340 feet between perpendiculars and had a beam of 54 feet and a design draft of 31 feet, they were large ships for the yard to build.

M.V.RAPALLO was launched from the yard on 26th of April 1960

Portofino, Rapallo & Italy's Riviera di Levante She was to prove to be a great favourite of many of the sailors who worked on her.

She was to go on to give great service to the Ellerman Wilson line used on the North Atlantic to Canada and the U.S.A. amongst many voyages, one of which you will soon be able to read about on the great new website, which is coming soon.
