The 1957 built Japanese bulk carrier Nikkyu Maru berthed at Napier March 1969. She was distinguished with the forward position of her bridge and the number of derricks she was equipped with. This photo was taken by the late Martin West, a port employee who photographed almost very vessel to visit Napier from 1954 - 1970 and whose collection I was fortunate enough to acquire a copy of.

An unusual arrangement. Nice. Can almost say it's a laker for the high seas. Nice photo.

Thanks for sharing the collection
