The 1969-built, 16,284 dwt, general cargo/container ship Axel Johnson is seen in this photograph while she was underway possibly at Seattle, Washington during August of 1973. Sometime during the late 1970s her deck cranes were removed. Click here to see her after her retrofit. In 1986 she and her sistership Margaret Johnson were sold to Universal Glow Inc and towed to Piraeus, Greece where both were to be converted to passenger ships. Only Axel Johnson received the conversion and she wnet on to sail as Regent Sun (87), Italia (88) and Costa Marina. Today she continues to sail as Costa Marina for Costa Crociere SpA of Italy.
