Built 1983 in Turku, Finland. SD15 Ship. 17kts and with a 576 teu capacity plus tanks for veggy oil. Purchased when she was 12 years old in 1995. Four double and four single berth passenger cabins. First stop was Tahiti. (Papeete).
NB: Historical note………..Looking back with the advantage of hindsight, this was a true hybrid vessel for the company, trying hard to combine the old languid ’round the islands’ lifestyle that we all loved with the kill joy modern rapid container turnrounds. It was a valient effort, but doomed to failurebeing neither one thing nor the other….
