I do not think the info. given bu Ole is correct. She was renamed Anglia in 1971, operated by Soc. Oceanica, then Aquila in 1974 operated by Grimaldi, 1978/9 Lloyds Register has her as a vehicle carrier. She was not converted to a livestock carrier, but she was gutted by fire in December 1979 and eventually broken up at La Spezia June 1980.

Incidentally Wallenius claim Aniara built 1963 to be the first pure car carrier.

The vessel was sold and converted to livestock carrier in the mid 1970ties (cannot remember the dates / nor the name) she was as far as I recall operated by Vroon. The vessel sank around 1992 with a cargo of live cattle.
best regards. Ole Moller
