Ships History
The Screw Steamer SS VALA was another from the early years of building at the Leith Shipyards of Ramage & Fergusons Shipbuilders, some of the finest looking ships ever built came from the shipyard at Leith.
This ship was the first of a two ship order from the shipping company of J.T. Salvesen & Co of Grangemouth, Scotland and she was fitted with a compound engine driving a new design of Bronze propeller.
Her sister ship the SS VINA was still on the building ways as she was launched into the Forth in December of 1893.
Build as a short sea trader this fine line coaster was for trade on the East Coast with voyages to the Baltic States as part of a round trip.
