I was sailing on this ship as Chief Engineer for 2 years from 1958 till 1960 when she was owned by belgian Fruit Lines as Frubel Maria.Was a nice modern ship in those days,everybody had is own cabin and all cabins were airconditioned.Made several trips Antwerp/Ecuador then for 1 year under charter for Geest bananas between UK/BWI and afterwards Antwerp/Argetina/Brasil.Main engine was a 10 cyl. Gothaverke witch gave us an average speed of 18 kn.the refrigerating plant were 3 double V 9 cyl. Stal-Laval compressors witch made it possible to transport meat at -18° C. wich we occasionally did on the run between UK/Trinidad.The only weak point was the powerplant(4 Skania aux.motors)who needed a lot of maintenance to keep them in good working order.Butt all by all I spent a grait time on that ship.
