NV Terneuzensche Scheepsbouw Maatschappi, 1950

351gt.  147ft 

Purchased in 1971 the Fretherne was reregistered in Gloucester and was probably the last sea going commercial vessel to be registered at the port.

 She has previously been registered as CAMPEN, FAVORIET,and  MERWESTAD before becoming the Panamanian registered EAGLE 2 in  1969

When Ken Shaw sold the Fretherene in the early 1980's to John Parsons of Kings Lynn  she was renamed the JONSUE.  At the end of her trading life she was abandoned up the Fosdyke and on 4th March1991 sank alongside the quay. The JONSUE was scapped in late 1991.
