... and 25 years on she still likes this colour
(isn't that the Ipswich group office top left?)

Reminds me of that old film "Operation Petticoat" with the pink submarine.

I found this link to Cecilia Battistello

I see that Phil has remembered better - it was indeed Cecilia.
There are some nice small Japanese ships also pink on site, but watch out for ONE near you:

It was a touch of "lippy". At the time one of the Battistella family running Contship was Sebastiana (name may not be right) - she ran the Ipswich office and brought a certain fashion style to the waterfront. It is said that she chose the colours for the "all-over" paint jobs they favoured for a while.

She must be the only shocking pink ship on the high seas !!

Well, err, it's uh... different. I can imagine all the lip the sailors on this one must get when they enter a port :-)
