Built in 1960 by Barclay Curle as Athel Line/s ATHELQUEEN and these were taken in Glasgow in 1980 following overhaul.
She only lasted another year being scrapped as SANIKA.

Hi

I'm trying to obtain more details concerning the Allison Star (ex Athelqueen).

Could tell me who she was owned by as the A.S. and what flag, I believe that prior to becoming the A.S. she was the Ocean Trader in 1971, do you have any details for this?

Thanks in advance

The Allison Star was a firm favorite of mine. She was a regular visitor to the Thames in the late 1970s. If I remember correctly, she was managed by Denholm for Consul Overseas Investments, which was just a single-purpose registered company. The actual ownership was unclear. She must have been on charter to the UK branch of one of the oil majors (Shell?), or a UK oil trader, as I seem to recall her doing coastwise and near continental trips to and from the Thames.

Cheers

I recall that Alison Star was managed by Denholm but not for all that long. When I am not sure but one of the Denholm lads will know

Carried Jet petrol-to Cliffe Jetty- when I piloted her in 1970's. Crew were Italian. She was not a favourite of mine!

Ship-nuts do tend to have their 'favourites', just because they like the look of them. I am sure a few days on-board their favourites might change their minds in many cases!
