The Durance class was designed by the same shipyard that created the Clydesdale class gunboat. The Durance, however, was designed as a freighter rather than a military vessel. As such it is more comfortable but not as rugged. While a number of old Clydesdales have been refitted for civilian transport duty, the larger Durance generally does a better job.
