British cargo ship. The Merchant Royal was a British cargo steamer, formerly known as the Goodwood. She was 5.008 tons, 416ft long and had a beam of 55ft. She was built in 1920 by J Redhead & Sons at Sunderland and was fitted with a huge Oxford triple-expansion three-cylinder steam engine. On the 3rd July 1946, carrying her cargo of steel and wood, she collided with another vessel and sank. Attempts to rescue her by tugs dispatched from Portland were in vain.
