Uruguay Star

An attractive view above of the Blue Star Cargo/passengerliner URUGUAY STAR (1948/10,723 grt).
Equipped to carry 53 First Class passengers, the URUGUAY STAR was powered by steam turbines. She was sold for demolition at Kaohsiung in 1972.

Didn't she end up being burnt out in one of the London Docks? Or was that the Paraguay Star?

Thanks Steve. It's a shame she burnt out, but then again I suppose her and her ilk were already living on borrowed time.

"Uruguay Star" Santos.

I was an EDH on the "Uruguay Star" 1970. Santos was mentioned.What memories of runs ashore there that brings back.

Uruguay Star, otherwise known as Chunkie's yacht!

He was the Chief Engineer in 1967-? I've forgotten his full name.

Sailed as passenger on Uruguay Star May 1953 from Buenos Aires to the UK. Had unscheduled call at Casablanca to off-load fruit from Brazil and then sailed for Plymouth where passengers were "off-loaded" as ship had orders to skip Tilbury and sail directly to Rotterdam. A good ship and wonderful voyage - lots of social activity on board!
