Hitachi made some nice twin funelled tankers during that period, such as the Cis Brovig, the Iyoharu Maru, the Shin Osaka Maru, several more Bergesen ships and the combo's Fernstar and Vestan.

Hi Acrop, thanks for the info. I have upgraded the data.

I imagine that some people at the time condemned the new-look all aft tankers of the late 1960s, but this is a superb-looking ship.

Great photo too :-)

Splendid, interesting design. If she was here today she'd be 50 years old !!
