    Published August 2020

    The JJ Sietas shipyard of Hamburg has been in operation since 1635. In this book, Bernard McCall doesn’t go back quite that far – only to the
    1950s when production increased – but there’s still enough history to fill more than one volume. In Part 1, McCall concentrates on cargo ships, with a few other vessels to show the variety produced by Sietas. 93 full-colour photographs show the shipyard’s output – mainly coasters – and
    each picture is accompanied by a short but detailed account of the vessel history and fate. It’s a pleasure to discover that some of the older vessels are still serving to the present day. There’s no doubt that this is a niche volume, as usual, but those who have served aboard a Sietas-built vessel or who are fans of the shipyard will be well satisfied.
