BP Vision & Vigour became Teekay Vision & Vigour on a bareboat deal with Teekay of Vancouver. The ´Vigour´ used to be ´Prosperity Queen´ in Sanko.
the ships were handed over to Teekay in August 1988. BP gained the Architect and Advocate which were 40k class product ships built in Onomichi for Teekay.
