FISH CLASS

The newly formed Sunderland Shipbuilders completed all 6 of the ‘ Fish’ class Bank Line vessels in 1979. They were purchased in turbulant times, as the rush to containers challenged the whole industry. Designed with the maximum flexibility for the rather unique trades of the company, they were a partial success. Most stayed 8 years before being sold on.

  1. I enjoyed looking at your Fish Class photographs. It will be 40 years ago this spring since we suffered a fire on the Tenchbank. Sunday lunchtime – looking forward to some chicken curry. No lunch and no galley for a week as we headed to Galveston from South Africa. An experience I will never forget.
