MV Empire MacKendrick was a grain ship converted to become a Merchant Aircraft Carrier or MAC ship.
The Burntisland Shipbuilding Company Ltd, Fife, Scotland, built her under orders from the Ministry of War Transport and was delivered on 12 December 1943. As a MAC ship, only her aircrew and the necessary maintenance staff were naval personnel. She was operated by William Thomson & Co (the Ben Line).
After the war, the ship was converted to a grain carrier. In 1967, while under Bulgarian management, she was trapped in the Suez Canal by the Six-Day War. She was scrapped at Split in 1975.
