La Estancia

I'm looking for a picture of the Buries Markes bulker 'La Estancia', built in Belfast, I think, around 1965/66.
Any info on her history would also be appreciated.
Thanks
McG

La Estancia

You can get a copy of the official H&W construction photographs of this vessel from the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum. Contact Ken Anderson the Head of the Photographic section with your request. FGrom memory he holds photographs from keel lay to launch and fitting out including sea trials.
For the record and to ease indentification she was yard number 1660 launched 30 June 1965 and delivered 30 September 1965 followed by her sister La Sierra yard number 1661 launched 24 November 1965 and delivered 12 February 1966. I remember walking under these ships as a spotty faced youth while they were on the slipways in the Queens Shipyard of H&W. Shipbuilding was still very new to me and I was terrified of being crushed should they fall off the blocks. Told you I was green in those days
Anyway good luck with the search, Ken is very helpful if a little slow.

Thanks Tmac

Info greatly appreciated. I know what you mean about the ship falling off the blocks. The few times I ventured down a dry dock, I was more worried if they had locked the s**t houses on board !!!
I acually joined her in Belfast at the dry dock in '66, just after the seamens strike, & sailed for Vittoria, Brazil. It was a Belfast/Cockney crew with a sprinkling of mad Jocks threw in...Wow, What a mix !!
Thanks again

My husband, James Lorimer sailed on the La Estancia when he was employed by Buries Markess Ltd. All BM ex employees were invited to join the BM Society and meet regularly. I will ask Jim if he has a picture of the ship for you.

Jim and I were on the La Pampa during 1979. He may know you. If you are an ex em ployee of Buries Markes Ltd. then you will remember being an Individualist! Mike Coker started it up several years ago now. You may contact and join via Michael Bowen. I cannot accept email right now, but if you email me at

*Ahoy,
Once again, I have edited out an email address posted on an Open Forum. This is not a good idea as, although with the best of intentions, it may result in some unwelcome mail arriving in your Inbox, and that's what you're not waiting for, isn't it?

Remember the night in Aviles in northern Spain,you ate a whole Pyalla to yourself. We were there on the Pampa loading steel wire for New Orleans,and a few of us went ashore for something to eat. There was you, Ken Morgan and his wife Sandra, Dave Snowdon and a few more, cant remember them all.
