Any idea of former name? She looks like a standard design from East German yard.

sailed on two of the Neptun boats under West German flag. The 'ILRI' and the 'LLOYD JACKSONVILLE' / 'MUGGENBURG' plied the W.African & S.American routes in the 70s. Quite enjoyed my stay!

Ahoy Pat,

The only Crusader Point, I can remember was the ex-Beate built in 1980 at Neptun Schiffswerft, and still around as Norgas Traveller-IMO:8026012, don't think you mentioned this one?
