In mid July, it was announced that Radio 355 would close down on August 14th. However on the 2nd August, the Station announced that it would close at midnight on the 5th August, as the contract with the ships owner run out on that day. With the Marine Offences Act only two weeks away there was no point in renewing the contract.

On the 5th August, all the deejay's on board said their final farewells. Radio 355 closed down fifteen minutes into August 6th 1967.
