m.v. Karukera (1963)

Hello,
I am a teacher very fond of ships. I am looking for the general arrangement plan of the reefer m.v. Karukera (1963 - "Karukera", Compagnie de Navigation Frutiere, France / 1978 – "Swan", Eureka Shipping Co., Grece / 1985, scrapped) . I will be very grateful to anyone who can help in my need. The plan I have is not accurate for my purpose: to built a scale model of this fine vessel.
Thank you,
Daslav

P.S.
My native language is Spanish, so please excuse my English.

Holla Daslav,

You will find a few plans drawings for Karukera at below link, you cannot download them but large print screens can help. I did it within a few minutes with Photofiltre

Thank you very much !

"Hola" Roland,
Thank you very much for your kindness. Thanks to you, I will get the plans I am looking for. I took photographs of this ship when she called at Antofagasta port in the early seventies. About ten years later, I wrote the master of the m.v. Swan (the former m.v. "Karukera"), asking him for the plans of his ship. Also I sent him US$ 20.00 in order to buy some film to take all views of the vessel he could. He kindly do it and I have the plans and the photos. Unfortunately, the plans were a copy that have lost accuracy (almost you cannot reed the writing!). Now, and thanks to you, my problem is solved.
I you look for some photos of a particular ship, or just you have a favorite one, I will happy looking into my boxes for something useful for you.
Thank you again and kind regards,
Daslav

Daslav,

Great, am happy you got the drawings you were looking for.

I suspect she was mainly built for banana trade from Guadeloupe, Karukera being the "creole" name for the island.

I will try find out information published in France at time of her delivery.

Have sent you a private message with my email adresses.

Take care.

Roland, from Normandy, France
