MV Princess Victoria was one of the earliest roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) ferries. Completed in 1947, she operated from Stranraer to Larne. During a severe European windstorm on 31 January 1953, she sank in the North Channel with the loss of 135 lives. This was then the deadliest maritime disaster in United Kingdom waters since World War II. For many years it was believed that 133 people had lost their lives in the disaster, but research by local historian Liam Kelly JP, DL, identified two other victims - Gordon Wright and Thomas Saunders - whose names had not been identified as there had been no ship's passenger list at the time.

  • Die Princess Victoria war ein im Jahre 1946 bei William Denny and Brothers Limited erbautes Fährschiff. Das Schiff sank am 31. Januar 1953 im Nordkanal zwischen Schottland und Nordirland bei schwerer See, ausgelöst durch den Orkan, der auch die Flutkatastrophe von 1953 herbeiführte. Zu dem Unglück kam es nach einem Wassereinbruch auf Grund gravierender Konstruktionsmängel an den Verschlußtoren des Fahrzeugdecks und dem daraus resultierenden Übergehen der Ladung. Nur 44 Personen von insgesamt 179 Passagieren und Besatzungsmitgliedern konnten gerettet werden.
