Billie,
The situation must have changed in the 90's then?

I remember very well that Vinke and Co were the exclusive agent for Onassis (I worked in their office with my desk next to Kimon Onassis - a cousin of you know who), also agent for Livanos and I even boarded several vessels of Niarchos as Owner's agent, so the big 3 of the 60's and beginning 70's..
Those companies mainly operated tankers although they also owned bulkers.
I also remember when Onassis changed their topside colour from white to black. All their vessels had a special dark green colour on the decks.
Todate all those agencies bundled in one big group now called Burger Ship's Agent.
Regards,
Jan
