does anyone have any information on the above ship which my father sailed on between 23-1-88/26-5-88 all i know its a container ship which was owned by part of the furness withy company and was registed in liverpool?
Andes was a 1900 TEU container ship, built by Hyundai in1984. She was registered as being owned by Furness Withy (Shipping) Ltd., and was entered into the Pacific Steam Navigation Service, from Europe to the west coast of South America. She was one of the founding vessels of the EUROSAL partnership, whereby they were able (sadly) to get rid of twenty proper ships and instead use seven container ships on the route. FW having been sold by Tung to Hamburg-Sud, I guess she is still part of that company, unless someone knows different.
