Possibly the Yeoward Line of Liverpool.
ALCA - AVOCETA - ALONDRA - ARDEOLA
Liverpool - Canary Islands service..The company was wound up in 1959,

A PS to Yeoward Line.
All ships had single funnel and three masts - fine looking ships.

Hi,
Did they not become part of the Anzar Line with cruise ships MONTE UMBE and MONTE URQUIOLA.

Hi Shipmate,
You are on track..Aznar gained the contract for Canary produce and Yeoward became their Liverpool agents.
In 1979 Aznar went out of business due to financial problems.
Nissui Company carried on the trade with Yeoward as their UK agents.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Norman.
I see the crew have pitched up already with a raft of suggestions.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.

A warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Norm.
I don't think it would be the Yeoward Line as their funnels were black with red and yellow bands and a 'Y' superimposed on the yellow band
