I wonder if anyone here remembers, or is able to look up, the callsign of NZ-registered MV Maranui for me. She was launched in 1953 and sank in 1968.
She had the same owners (Northern Steam Ship Company) and same name for her entire career...
A view dating from about the mid to late 1960's. I think two of the vessels are Oriana (on the seaward side of the harbour) and Maori (amongst those on the landward side.)
One of the cargo ships looks to be a member of the New Zealand SS Co. but the others I am unable to identify
A Twin Screw Steamer built in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1912, before being dismantled and then transported by goods train to Kingston on Lake Wakatipu. She was then re-assembled and re-launched to ply her trade on the lake, and is still doing so.
