In 1977 she was renamed Winchester Castle and with that change Clan Line passed into history, owning no further ships.

She became the Winchester Universal under the same ownership in 1979 and in October of the following year was sold to Braganza Bay Shipping Co. of Piraeus who renamed her Lady Madonna.

On 25th April 1985 she arrived at Gadani Beach where she was broken up.
