FIRBANK – the lead ship of 21 ordered from William Doxford in Sunderland in 1957. The last ship, the SPRUCEBANK, was delivered in 1964.

Sailed the Oceans for 24 years. 1957 to 1973 for Bank Line, then as AEGIS BEAUTY under the Greek flag for 5 years. Her final 3 years were under the flag of the Maldives as MALDIVE SEAFARER. ( A nice touch given the Bank Line’s familiarity with the Islands.)
