Known as the "Scandinavian Type".

Some of the class were converted into Crane Ships with the addition of two heavy lift Derricks.

PS I see the Bordagain Shipping Company were Owned/Managed by a French Company, R. de la Sota Jr.

PPS. She was DARING not DARLING..... ;)

Also in Mr Lloyds big red book for 1969 she is down as Somali Republic, although no Port of registry is shown.
