She was the first of two,the other being HARFLEUR,completed 1973/74 by Scotstoun Marine,the former Charles Connell yard in Glasgow.They were both for J&C Harrison in London.
Later sold she was renamed ANTACUS and in 1984 foundered on a voyage from Antwerp to New Orleans.

Yes she departing from Bremerhaven and sank north of Azores july 16 1984,
her 19-man crew was safely rescued from two lifeboats. The ANTACUS had a
hull and machineryo $10m.
