Ships History

Once a ship had been built and launched she then had to be out-fitted, and then complete sea trials
before being handed over to her new owners, who would look to have that ship at sea, as long as possible to
pay for her build costs and of course to make the company good profits.

To this end one company may have had no requirement for a particular ship after a time and would then sell her on just like any other disposable commodity.

Hence a ship may have had a few owners and would go through many changes and names during what was
hoped for a long and successful working life.

The twin screw passenger ship SAINT ANTHONY was a coastal passenger ship built for the Indian Co-operative Navigation and Trading Company Ltd, Bombay and she had accommodation for 800 deck passengers on three decks along with some cabins with a dining saloon for first class passengers, she was equiped with all modern electrics and even had radio equipment installed for entertainment and amusments.

With real fine lines she was another of the "Special Ships" the yard produced.

We try here to give as full an account of her history as time and research permits, if you know of missing info
or you have any photographs of her, then please get in touch and we shall update her story as we go along.
