Ship No 198
Was the first order for a Twin Screw Motor Cargo Vessel for the famous Coast Lines Ltd shipping company.
At 888 tons with a length overall of 230 feet and a beam of 35 feet she was a fair size of vessel built for the coastal trade around the British Isles. She was launched from the Leith yard on 6th September 1933.
She was to go on to have an interesting “War service” which you can read more of in the page dealing with Leith Built ships on war service.
