The 1966-vintage Prudential Oceanjet and Prudential Seajet are among my all time favorite freighters. Both had wonderfully graceful lines, especially from the stern quarter aspect, as did their near sisters US Lines' American Racer, Ranger, Rover, Reliance and Resolute. The two Prudential ships were built by the Bethlehem Steel Shipyard at Sparrows Point Maryland. After Prudential Lines was absorbed by the Delta Line the Prudential Oceanjet was first renamed Delta Africa and then Santa Adela. The ship was sold for scrapping in 1981. In the vignette the ship is maneuvering in the port of New York circa 1974.

The Oceanjet and Seajet were lovely ships that I had the opportunity to pilot on many occasions. Automated engines controlled from the wheelhouse that gave the fastest bells on a steamer that I knew of.

The name might not have rolled off the tongue easily, but it was well-chosen. As Wallace notes the Prudential Oceanjet and Prudential Seajet were fast ships in more ways than one. I remember watching them sailing toward the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to the open Atlantic from the beach in Norfolk and they looked magnificent. Also, their design and the new livery made the old Prudential Victory ships like San Angelo Victory, Moline Victory, et al look very old fashioned, indeed.

I agree, a good place to be to see the ships go out into the Atlantic. I was stationed at Fort Monroe and had a home behind Old Point Comfort.

These are two of my favorite cargo ships of their era. Real good looking from any angle, streamlined, fast, and with proper cargo gear. I think their unusual names are a nice mix of the traditional and the contemporary. I like them so much that a model is in the works. Thank you for the beautiful rendering.

Interesting comments. To my eye the two Prudential ships were sleeker looking than their near sisters, the Challenger II class of United States Lines. The white stripe surely contributed to the optical illusion.
