Although the name is apparent, I cannot figure out which TAXIARCHIS is depicted in this pic taken at Perama, Piraeus at an unknown date.
The small sign on the bow reads "refrigerated..." and I believe she is at the end of a conversion that could have included re-engining into diesel.

I have two options for her:
a) The 1950-built steam trawler FLENSBURG that was named TAXIARCHIS from 1962 to 1974.

b) The 1944-built BERLEBEK (later ROTERSAND) that was named TAXIARCHIS from 1978 to 1981.

Your input would be most welcomed!

My first impression, looking at the line/shape of her hull, is that she’s not a trawler like the Flensburg SO 106 !
Her shape reminds me more of a freighter ; but what intrigues me then is the (arrow) net lifting pulley, on starboard, in front of the load mast, which is typical for a trawler and of no use aboard of cargo ??
Furthermore, up to now, I didn’t yet find a pic of the 1944-built BERLEBEK, later ROTERSAND, to compare.

More like a supply/mother ship to a fishing fleet.

She has a pair of side-trawling gallows with the hull plating reinforced below each to protect against trawl doors. If she is a mother ship might she be equipped to recover the gear of a trawler that had suffered some mechanical failure?
Her plating looks neat. Could this be a new-build?

Another possibility for the ships' identity:
Built in 1931 στα C.N.Acciajerie, Venice as dredger AEGAEON for the Special Fund of Mechanical and Harbor Works and registered in Piraeus (no.685). At about
1948 she was rebuilt as a diesel cargo ship (400 grt, 55.7 x 9.4 m). Renamed IOLCOS in 1958, TAXIARCHIS in 1961 and ΑΝΝΑ R. in 1971. At some point (60s-70s) she was rebuilt into a trawler and lengthened. On 13 July 1981 she was wrecked off the coast of Somalia.
