Philidora

Philidora

s.s. "Philidora"
Company: "Shell Tanker BV"
Built in 1959 @ Bethlehem Steel USA
Deadweight: 50.125 ton
s.s. "Philidora" is one of the vessels of the "PH-class". They were built during the cold war. 
They were equipped for navigating in convoy and they had extra engine power for navigating faster then 16 knots.
All cabins had a lot of beds so the ships could be used as a kind of troopship.
Every cabin had a plate, on this plate was stated how many people could sleep inside.
The ships were long-time chartered to the US Government. 
After some time the barbarian cabins were modified to the modern standards.
