The lead ship of 17 built by Harlands in Belfast. They were a successful design introduced at the end of the break bulk era and on average they served 15 or 16 years for the company. All single screw, they had a simple 5 hatch design with the obligatory deeptanks for oil cargoes. ( See the article, ” A Bank Line Voyage IN 1959″ detailing one of these ships – the 1958 CRESTBANK.)
