Monte Balerdi - Collection C. Kleiss
At Vigo, without knowing which one of them she was. Behind was the Canberra.
        On 1964/66 the Naviera Aznar was scheduled for taking delivery of five coaster ships built by Juliana Constructora Gijonesa. Their names would be: Monte Uno, Monte Dos, Monte Tres, Monte Cuatro y Monte Cinco, but three were sold when yet at the shipyard. They were the Monte Uno, Monte Dos and Monte Cinco, sold to Naviera Eco the first and to Naviera Vasco Gaditana the other two, renamed Eco Luisa, Puerto de Pasajes and Puerto de Cadiz respectively.
        The Monte Tres and Monte Cuatro were also renamed before their delivery as Monte Berretin and Monte Balerdi. They were sold on 1968 to Vapores Suardíaz, keeping their names until sold on 1982 to Panamanian shipping companies.
        After several owners and names they finished their lives almost at same time. The Monte Berretin was scrapped on 1992 and the Monte Balerdi on 1990 but before she was during short time used for radio broadcasting close to Honduras.
