The Motor Vessel BORTHWICK was an order from the old local shipping company of George Gibson’s.

The order was for a Liquid Petroleum Gas Tanker of 1569 grt, she had a length between perpendiculars of 73.2 metres with a beam of 12.8 metres with a design draught of 6 metres.

She was launched from the Leith Shipyards of Robb Caledon on the 28th of September 1977.

She had a long career and was re-named a couple of times, all of which you can see more of on the new website to go onto the internet very soon.
