I gave her a more modern look. She will also star in an update of the Sinking of the Brickton, which will most likely be the last entry in this series. Enjoy this simple creation. PS, in this guise and in the sinking update she is the MV Brickton. I'll also reveal the story of her 30 year career here. Anyway, you can notice that the smokestack is more appropriate for the time at which she sank (May,1 1989, one day prior to her 51st birthday)
About this creation
A view of the side of the ship. The SS Brickton was launched on May 2, 1958 by the Passenger Bricking Ferry and Atlantic Crossing Co., based in Sweden. It worked as a ferry in many Swedish Harbors. In 1965, it was converted from coal to oil. That same year she was sold to the Yellow Brick Line, which rented it for private cruises and had her serve as a ferry in London Harbor and on the River Thames. In 1975, it started making Mediterranean ferry crossings, that usually lasted 3-4 days.
A view of the bow. In 1980, the Brickton was finally converted from oil to motor power, changing it to a motor vessel, the MV Brickton. The MV Brickton collided with the MV Ital Florida in 1986, with no damage obtained. On her Greek 2 week cruise in 1989, she would not be as lucky. Find out details of the sinking in the update of the Sinking of the Brickton.
