I took this in March 1977 on the New Waterway with a note -ex LORD CODRINGTON??
Could anyone confirm if she is indeed this Scotts' 1954 built ship.

i'm afraid not. The Lord Codrington and Lord Byron (both 9,364tg and 501 ft length) did not have the samson post forward of the foremast. The Lord Gladstone (1959 11,299tg and 530ft loa) may have. If it was an ex Norship. Apart from that the superstructure etc looks similar.

From LR 1978-79:
built 1959 by Scotts' S.B., Greenock
ex N.ZOGRAFIA - 75
ex LORD GLADSTONE - 69

So what happened to the Constantinos T?
10th November 2004, 18:49
Somebody has never enough...
in 1978 she was renamed CAPETAN COSTIS
in 1980 STYLIANI
in 1981 MALDIVE PRIVILEGE
in 1984 DYNASTY HURA
Do not ask me what was her final fate because she disappears from the Registers without explanation in 1987.

Many thanks.She had a long life.

In 1980 her gross tonnage decreased to 11,147 remeasured or what? her net then was 6628 and dwt of 15802. Same ship?
11th November 2004, 18:10
Yes she was the same ship always.
Not only she changed several owners, flags and trades, with consequent opening or closing of spaces, etc.,but also during her long life also tonnage regulations changed (do not ask me when and how), so differences and/or adjustments are inevitable.

I had been the agents in Chittagong whilst she was under tow from Colombo to Chittagong for beaching. She was scrapped during Feb 1984
