Very nice. I think they all got GOLD-prefixes.

Added by Paul Strathdee on 15 June 2012.
You are correct Paul. Gold Varda, Gold Hilla, Gold Orli, Gold Alisa. British flagged, registered in London. Great ships and invariably happy ships - privileged to sail in all four during my 10 year stint with Haverton Shipping. When one rejoined one of them after a spell of leave, one expected to find that one had sailed previously with most of the officers or crew. (See my recent comment under the builders picture of the Varda.)

I have just seen on Google Maps that the name of one of the roads in the new Clydebank College site is called ALISA ROAD.
It would be nice to think that it is named after the last vessel completed at Upper Clyde Shipbuilders. It seems very likely but can anyone confirm?
(See also entry on m.v.VARDA on this site, for details of other Clyde Class vessels).)

It is indeed David.

I've got the ame photo on my wall in my office. I believe it was used as a calender photo for the company's calenders, year unkown. I also spent many years on the four vessels as one of the Radio Officers. Good memories.

The photo was used by the company for a calender, unknown year, of which I have a copy in my office. I also spent about 10 years on these vessels with very happy memories.

Ship was called only 'Alisa' when I joined the first time...They were all renamed later

I sailed on all four of the Haverton vessels (later Gold Star line), from 1977 to 1998, starting of as 2nd Mate and finally as master.They were the most memorable years of my seagoing career. It was a sad day when I took the GOLD ORLI (renamed AFROASIA STAR) to be scrapped at Alang in March 1998. It was a pleasure indeed to sail with most of the other contributors to this article.

I am also 'built 1973' and named after this ship. From the 'blue train' into work, my Dad passed the Alisa and hence my name.
