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 S.S.TEANO was the Third steamship of the three ship order for the Ellerman Wilson Line the S.S.TEANO was launched from the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb in 1955
She was all Riveted construction with nice lines and classic counter stern.
A bit smaller than the S.S.Cicero and the S.S.Rollo she was a very nice ship all the same with her classic look and high end interiors she also had room for 12 fare paying passengers who were looked after similar to a first class hotel.
She served the Wilson Line for 13 years before being sold on and she was sold on a couple of more times until fire broke out on board and she was classed as a Total Constructive Lose in 1976.
The S.S.TEANO was another ship destined to be broken up at the ship graveyard of Gadani Beach, Pakistan.
