This smart ferry was built by Ferguson/s of Port Glasgow in 1978 for service in the Gambia.She had a short life,becoming a total loss following grounding.This shot was taken when she was on trials.

For Kevin,ex crew:
Hi Kevin and welcome to Ships Nostalgia.LADY CHILEL JAWARA was really a smart ship.I saw her building,being launched and on trials in 1978.I/ll look out some pictures and post them on the site.I think she acted as a Royal Yacht on one occasion conveying Princess Anne??
