Taupo

New Zealand Line's Taupo is seen in London's Royal Albert Dock in 1971. Built 1966 she was 10,983 gr tons. A very handsome ship by all measures I suppose it could be said that all previous freighter designs led up to these ultimate beauties before the world changed.

Don't know what her complement was when she first went into service but she had a crew of 37 as of May 1st 1971.
This was at the height of General Purpose manning.
