MACEDONIAN REEFER

MACEDONIAN REEFER

Napier
1982

I was amazed at the condition of the ship when I went onboard, no doubt she was well maintained due to being on charter to her former owners Lauritzen Peninsular Reefers.

Built 1968 for P and O as Mataura
1977 to Federal SN and renamed Wild Mallard
1981 sold and renamed Macedonian Reef

Her condition was probably due to the previous P&O 'Cowboys' crews who worked on her. Spent a pleasant 5 days aboard her in Auckland in '78 whilst taking a half day off Somerset!!

Very nice indeed. These type of ships always get to good ports. Looks like someone found a stash of RFA grey as the Hull colour is very similar to an RFA.
