B/S GEORGIOS AVEROFF

B/S GEORGIOS AVEROFF
The vessel, belonging to the Pisa class, like her Italian sisters Amalfi and Pisa, was being built at Orlando Shipyards at Livorno in Italy, when the Italian government cancelled the third ship of the class due to budgetary concerns. The Greek government immediately stepped in and acquired the ship with a 1/3 down payment (ca. 300,000 gold pound sterling), paid with the help of a wealthy Greek benefactor, George Averoff, whose name she received. The ship was fitted with an extraordinary combination of French engines, British artillery and German instrumentation.
