Vistafjord (24,292 grt) was the last liner to be built in UK. Norwegian America continued to operate a summer transatlantic liner service for a couple of years after she was delivered in May 1973 by Swan Hunter on time, to contract price and at a profit. She remains in service today with Saga as Saga Ruby.
Copenhagen (13,758 grt) was laid down as a cruise ship by Vickers, Barrow in 1970 as a tax scam by a group of Danish dentists. The scheme did not work. Construction was held up on the berth, she was eventually launched, then laid-up, towed to Swan Hunter for completion and finally sold to the Black Sea Shipping Co in 1975. A financial horror all round. She has now been scrapped.
The last significant passenger ship to be built in UK was P&O's ferry Norsea (31,785 grt) by Govan in 1987. Smaller passenger ships have continue to be built for McBrayne.
