M/V "LLOYD-MANDU" SHIP-BUILDRER'S PLATE
THE LAST OF A BREED!
Presented is a rare and highly unusual quality plate
in exceptional condition. It is covered in a pleasing green patina. It is very unusual because it includes the name
of the ship, LLOYD MANDU, whose launching it celebrates at the Mauá Shipyard, of the Commerce and Navigation Company of Niterói, RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil. You do
not find that often on a plate which mostly gives the yard's build number and launch date if that much. Also, the lettering
is raised higher than usual and the "CN" cartouche of the shipping line adds a dramatic appearance.
The BRAZILIAN LLOYD LINE was founded in 1890, and initially ran
passenger and cargo coastal and Amazon River services. Routes were expanded to cover the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, South
and Central America and the United States. However, many of their ships were laid up in the early 1990s and the company ceased operating
LLOYD MANDU was the 11th freighter
of the 13 ships of the PRI 121 class ordered from the Mauá Shipyard, of the Commerce and Navigation Company of Niterói for
a diverse group of Brazilian ship-owners. She was launched in 1979. The PRI 121 Class was a development of the SD
14 Class built in Brazil. Specifically, this ship was ordered for the ship-owner Brazilian Lloyd Navigation Company.
In 1993 she was sold to Memory Navigation Co., of Cyprus and renamed Prometheus.
