Nice shot Phil, still in good condition.

Nice one Phil. It was ships like this that got me hooked in this interest. She was a real classic, 12 passengers and 18 knots plus service speed, a real beauty.
There are 2400 members on here.... maybe we could buy a bit of water somewhere to keep one :-D

Thanks for the comment Carimar. It's a shame these sort of ships are all but gone and only distant memories. Unlike cars, buses, trains and even aircraft, you can't just buy an old ship and keep it afloat 'under preservation'. There are far too many difficulties, After all, where would you keep one :lol:

sad they all have gone! having been sailing on that kind of ships!
she was built by Rotterdamsche D.D. Maatschappij N.V., Rotterdam as yard No. 303, and delivered in June 1960 as MADISON LLOYD.1977 renamed NEDLLOYD MADISON. 1982 renamed SAUDI JEDDAH.
She was engined with a 9-Cyl. Sulzer engine built at Winterthur, Switzerland. Her 10'500bhp has given her a service speed of 18.5 knots. She could carry up to 12 passengers.

Thanks for the comment Willem. I'm afraid I don't have any old records such as former names, etc. I agree that she is a lovely old ship though :-)
