I know I am biased, but this is (was) a beautiful ship.

Hi Tanker, wonderful pic of Ilesha Palm. Are you sure that she cost £10,000,000?--sounds a lot for a '60's ship. Did you mean the whole series?
Keep those great pics coming.
Regards, Brench

I think correct the entirely series was estimated £10,000,000 and this was the last of the series.(Adlard Coles pubb.)

Excellent ships. The run was OK during 60's & very early 70's then went downhill quickly after that. Still going I think.
