The Bahama Star

The Bahama Star (9,070 grt, 466 ft. long) was originally built as the Borinquen for Porto Rico Line.

She was rebuilt by Arosa Line in 1954 and renamed Arosa Star for a transatlantic service.

Bought by Eastern Shipping Corporation (Eastern Steamship Lines) in 1959 she sailed as the Bahama Star between Miami and Nassau during most of the 1960s until sold to Western Steamship Co. to become the La Jenelle. She was wrecked in 1970.
