Photographer:Paul Strathdee [View profile]Title:SUGAR TRANSPORTERAdded:Mar 15, 2008
Photo Category: Bulkers built 1961-1970
Six bulkers for Sugar Line were built on the Clyde between 1968 and 1974.
SUGAR TRANSPORTER and her sister SUGAR REFINER were 1970s builds coming from the Lithgow yard at Port Glasgow in 1970/ 71.
They visited Glasgow on several occasions, not with sugar but grain or iron ore and this shot of SUGAR TRANSPORTER was taken in 1978 from Erskine Bridge outbound after discharging ore.
As SUNSET she sank in October 1991 on a voyage from Poland to Taiwan.

Dear Leratty

There are two Sugar Exporter's on the site.

Go to search and type in name.

I served on the Sugar Exporter in early 60's on deck, per chance does anyone know where there might be photograph of her? I can not seem to locate any on the net. Thanks

I sailed on this vessel in 77, must have been a trip to the west Indies for sugar as my discharge book shows London to London (Silvertown.

Rogerio, as far as I remember, she was lost on the sea, not scrapped.

Great picture !

I remember her as Sunset, and took some photos of her sistership, Sunrise, once when I catch time to find and scan them, they'll appear here.

Regards from Croatia - M. Kronja
