I believe that when they were built the pair of them were the largest Reefer ships in the world.

The photographer is definately not John Clarkson.
The photo was taken at Bluff in 1983 and swapped probably by one of the two local photographers exchanging world wide.

I joined this vessel in Antwerp as it changed name and sailed on board as 5th Engineer for a six-month contract, great time, I must look out a photo of her once I get home taken in Bluff just after she arrived and moored next to all the small oyster boats for a few days before shifting to meat loaders.
