Just a correction, Vistafjord was built by Swan Hunters on the River Tyne at Newcastle not at John Browns on Clydeside.

Piloted her many times as Saga Ruby - also as Vistafjord. From almost every angle when approaching this particular vessel in the pilot cutter, she always looked like a 'proper ship' with a traditional sheer and well balanced superstructure, sadly unlike many of her more modern counterparts of today, with huge slab-sided accommodation, plus sometimes 'designer label' gaudy paintwork on the hull.

A fine old lady and a memory of one that will live long in those of us who cherish when 'ships were real ships'.

Thanks for your comments gents and correction, Sean.

Doverpilot, I think this is the kind of 'modern vessel' you refer to.
