In August 1976 I was a Deck Officer of Phillips America. I attended the last two months rigging and the christening of the ship in Sasebo Senpaky Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha (S.S.S.K) Tategami-cho, Nagasaki, Japan. Berlen from Mola di Bari, Italy, the Master. The name America came from USA's 200 years birthday.
The Owner, Phillips Petroleum Co., USA, payed the Shipyard 20.000.000 US$.
The ship had liberian flag and 34 crew members.
I have a full video of the christening ceremony.
