The Dizengoff shipping company of Tel Aviv has acquired a 9,400-ton steamship from the Isthmian Steamship Company, thus increasing its fleet to three vessels. This ship, which is of similar construction as the other two and will also be used for freight and passenger traffic, will be renamed the S.S. Abraham Graetz.
