Why Silver Line chose this rather bizarre profile, with a forward dummy funnel, is not known to me. The forward funnel incorporated the radar equipment, monkey island, chart room, radio room, part wheel house as well as the master's and pilot's quarters.

At least Cunard knew something about two-funnelled ships when they bought them. They were primarily cargo liners - there's even a hold between the funnels - and believed to be the only two such that were built with two funnels (fore and aft, that is, not twin P&S) since WW2.

I rather say Andria, it can be seen that the named painted on the bow is a short name, of course I can be wrong because my eyes are not the same when I was 18 years old.
