MV Karadeniz was the second of a pair of identical ships to be built, but they were part of the Turkish rebuilding plan at the time and were two of a total of five ships built at the same time by the A.G. Weser Shipyards in Bremen/Bremerhaven, Germany.

The Karadeniz and her slightly younger sister Akdeniz were the larger ships of the five and were 8,809 GRT, whereas the three Izmir class ships were only 6,041 GRT. However, the Izmir ships were almost identical with only very minor differences in their appearances; however the big differences was that the Izmir class ships only had a single screw and sailed at a slower service speed of just 14 knots.

Karadeniz had a pair of M.A.N. diesel engines and sailed at a respectable service speed of 18.s knots. Although the Akdeniz was the first to be delivered in December 1955, the Karadeniz followed by her sister within months in 1956 and commenced service on the North and South Mediterranean service.
Sadly, in 1984 MV Karadeniz suffered a fire in her engine room whilst she was at Izmir, although details are sketchy I believe that she never recuperated from the event and she was eventually sold and broken up at Aliaga in 1987.
