Valetta

Ditlev-Simonsen's 'Valetta' bought on TradeMe recently. Would she be the 1972 ship?

Brent, I think she was built especially for the BPC charter for phosphate from nauru island to NZ, i seem to remember she had special tank configuration for carrying extra freshwater northbound in ballast condition, for use by the islanders.
A regular visitor to NZ with a popular norwegian crew.
