  • Description

    The keel of the first ship above 1,000 tons to be built in modern Greece, was laid at the Hellenic Shipyards, Scaramanga Bay, near Athens, March 27. Mrs. Amalia Karamanlis, wife of the Greek Premier, officiated by symbolically welding the keel of 25,000 tanker, the first of a six-ship fleet to be built for shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos.

    Mr. Marcos Nomicos, Chairman of the Association of Greek Shipowners, afterwards promised unlimited support for the shipyards. He said that if Greek shipowners placed orders for new vessels with Greek shipbuilders, rather than Japanese and European yards, it would give a considerable boost to Greek national economy.
