OCL container ship photographed at anchor off Greenock waiting to berth in the mid 1980s.She had been diverted to the Clyde because of a strike at Southampton.
I think originally she was a Nedlloyd ship chartered.This before P&O and Nedlloyd amalgamated.

Nedlloyd Houtman / Largs Bay

The Largs Bay was chartered by OCL from Nedlloyd. The Nedlloyd Houtman was at the time the largest container ship in the world (by deadweight), frequently acheiving 27+ knots. OCL operated the vessel in the Trio service.
