Excerpt from The Burntisland Group Journal Vol.26 no.4, pp.112-113 April 1961.
"On April 25th, 1960...The Maureen Croan left the builders' slipway completely finished and ready to proceed to sea-trials"..."A strong family interest was shown in the proceedings on the day since Miss Josephine Croan names the Maureen Croan and Miss Madeleine Croan names the Malcolm Croan."..."extensive sub-assembly methods of construction were used on the two vessels. Large hull units were pre-assembled prior to erection on the building berth and a large proportion of the work was carried out under cover with consequent accuracy and welding quality, together with the substantial reductions in building time."
