Ship No 493
TRIBENI was a classic looking survey ship, not unlike some of today’s large super yachts.
She was an order from Commissioners for Port of Calcutta, for a twin screw survey vessel.
She was 918 grt, with a length B.P. of 175 feet, and a beam of 35 feet along with a design draught at 17 feet.
She was launched from the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb shipbuilders on the 30th of June 1965.
We will have a full feature on this great looking vessel on the new website, to be online very soon.
