Oceanic Grandeur

Hi all looking for information on the Oceanic Grandeur and oil tanker launched in 1965. I am meeting the daughter of the lady who launched this vessel on a long term lease for Ampol Petroleum next week. This lady launched the W M Leonard a tanker owned by Ampol.
Cheers

I take it this is the Oceanic Grandeur that struck an uncharted rock on 3 March 1970 in Torres Strait while en-route from Dumai, Indonesia, to Brisbane.

The Oceanic Grandeur was carrying approximately 55,000 tonnes of Sumatran crude oil and a marine pilot to navigate through the Strait. Eight of the 15 oil cargo tanks were ruptured and oil was spilt upon impact.

Go to http://www.amsa.gov.au/marine-enviro...r-3-march-1970 for more details.

Cheers, Chris
