S.S. Ore Prince Class Ships
|S.S. Ore Prince, leader in a series of ore ships, built by National Bulk Carriers, Kure Shipbuilding Division.|
These three ships were built for Universe Tankships in the company shipyard in Kure, Japan. They were built more or less along the same lines as the tankers built in the same yard. These were single screw ore ships, and again, they used parts salvaged and scrounged from surplus. For photos of the other two ships of the class, click on the ship name in the table below.
