On December 30, 1963, the former DFDS ferry named Fredericia was sold to Cross Channel Container Services Limited of Greenore, Ireland, and then taken from Denmark to the Wijsmuller shipyard at Rotterdam, Holland.
On January 8, 1964, the mv Fredericia was renamed Iseult. It is to become both a ferry and cargo ship operating between southern Ireland and northern England on behalf of Weatherwell Ltd of Ireland.
On February 13, 1964, the former Fredericia left Rotterdam for Greenore in the Republic of Ireland.
On March 5, 1964, the ship now renamed Caroline left Greenore, Ireland for an anchorage off southeast England.
On March 27, 1964, the mv Caroline as the floating home of Radio Caroline, began test broadcasts to England. On that same day a company called Planet Productions Limited was registered as a sales company in the Republic of Ireland, while in London, the mainstream press reported that Beatrix Miller, editor of Jocelyn Stevens' 'Queen' fashion magazine has resigned after learning that the name of her fashion magazine style sheet named 'Caroline', is going to be used by Jocelyn Stevens for a daytime radio station of the same name as her style sheet, but aimed at housewives. Beatrix Miller's style sheet was aimed at an up-market and reasonably wealthy young Society woman; whereas Jocelyn Stevens' target is a young houswife.
