Andrea C resfurbished in 1973

That's how she looked liked after an overall refurbishment in 1973

I have always considered the Andrea C to be a most beautiful ship. Particularly among the Costa fleet.

Does anyone have anymore detailed information as to her fate?

ANDREA C was scrapped at LaSpezia in 1983 following 1981 layup and 1982 sale to breakers.

She'd originated as a standard "Ocean" wartime cargo ship and was rebuilt following the end of the War into a migrant vessel.

Lenghtened and re-engined (Fiat) in 1959,speed increased from 13.5 to 16 knots and lengthened 24' .

Hope this helps.

Members out there could do a study of passenger ships crafted from former freighters.
Am currently converting the Revell C-3 "Hawaiian Pilot" kit to the Lauro ROMA which herself was similarly converted post
