The EUROLINER (1971) 28 knots, 250 tonnes per day for gas turbines. Departing New York the new SEALAND GALLOWAY was coming in at the end of her maiden voyage. Heard her on the VHF, " Ambrose Pilot, Ambrose Pilot, this is SEALAND GALLOWAY. We are SLOWING down to THIRTY KNOTS!" Her average speed was 35 knots and was burning 500 tonnes/day.
