    HistoryAberdeen Press & Journal 27th August 1954:
    'East Coast Boats Have to be Tough'
    'Fifteen minutes after the Ormesby Queen had slipped into the water of the River Dee, the Stephen Brown, a motor collier built for Messrs J. & A. Brown and Abermain Seaham Colliery Ltd, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, slid down the slips from the yard of Messrs Hall Russell & Co. Ltd. into Aberdeen's tidal harbour.
    As the collier left the way she was named by Lady Home, wife of Sir David George Home.
    The Stephen Brown is a single screw, single deck vessel of about 1800 tons deadweight, with raked stem, cruiser stern and machinery aft. She is 253ft 6in. in overall length with a beam of 40ft.
    There are two holds served by steel hatchways of the combined rolling and pivoting type. The hatchways are free from obstruction to facilitate grab discharge.'

    'Stephen Brown, a former collier, is moored permanently at Beauty Point, where it has been renovated for use as a stationary training ship. She is connected to shore power and water to enable the propulsion plant to be operated for training purposes. Holds 1 and 2 have been installed with various fully-operational machinery for training purposes.'

    This ship is listed on the Australian Register of Historic Vessels, which can be found on the Useful Links page.
