She was the second of 5 built 1959-1961 at Harland and Wolff/s Glasgow yard for BI.Sisters were BANKURA,BAMORA,BOMBALA,BARPETA not neccesarily in that order.
I drew this at school invoking comment-not particularly favourable I/m afraid!Art class was for art,not drawings of ships!

Excellent! Nice to see her.Remember berthing next to her in London when I was on CITY OF PORT ELIZABETH on a trip to Hamburg but did not get any photos of her (BULIMBA that is).

Nice looking ships and regular visitors to New Zealand in the 1960s.

Hi, wonder if you have any contact information to obtain plans for the vessel. We would like to construct a scale model of the vessel.

A very commendable drawing of a fine ship. I was second mate on Bamora.

According to Laxon & Perry's leet definitive fleet history, BULIMBA was actually the first of the class to be completed (26.03.1959) followed in order by BANKURA, BARPETA, BAMORA and BOMBALA
