The Harris yard list shows her as 141 GRT but, as with Meeching, that figure would have been questionable. Meeching's on record as 152, 153, 163 and 173, depending on where you look!

Although the superstructure is very different to Meeching, Burgemeester Vandamme shares the same hull form, main engines and major equipment. She came off the adjacent slipway a few weeks earlier than Meeching in 1960.

Thanks for the information gentlemen. Interesting that she shares so much with the Meeching.
