Cool Auckland Star(1986)

H&W yard No.1723 the Auckalnd Star in the building dock during summer of 1985.
The ship went into layup once completed until finally sailing January 1986.
One of four sister ships that proved to be the last that Blue Star built for the company.

I sailed on the auckland star, When she was chartered by fyffes on southampton to belize and honduras run in sept 1999. It was a thirty day round voyage. The charter was lost. Southampton lost the banana trade it was moved back to portsmouth I have been trying to find out what happened to the three sister ships, Auckand star, English star and Scottish star.
