Hello Patricia,

The SOUTHERN VENTURER was a whale factory ship belonging to the Sevilla
Whaling Co. Ltd (Christian Salvesen & Co), Leith. She was 14,418 gross tons,
length 539.7ft x beam 74.4ft, two funnels (side by side). Built in 1945 by
Furness Shipbuilding Co, Haverton Hill-on-Tees, she made one voyage a year
to the Antarctic to service the whale catchers and process the catch.
Sold to Nippon Suisan Co, Tokyo in 1962, she was renamed SOUTHERN VENTURER
MARU.
I have no later info on this ship - anyone?

regards
Ted
