Slight typo here, That should be POROS, a Greek Island.

Can't find her in my collection of Smits either, nor in Wijsmuller's fleet. Looks early 60's design, but not really in the 'German' ie Bugsier style. I'm curious, but stumped!

I think this is the Asteri, I believe she is now a private yacht, built originally in Greece circa 1970

Steve, yes, I agree she is the Perama built 'Asteri' , now 'Asteria' , IMO 1007811, and converted as you say. Good looking vessel and I'm glad that the rich are buying these up and keeping them afloat.
I found a photo of her here - scroll down to page 17 once loaded-

They may have modelled it on the Smits tugs?

What ever happened to that shipping news page? It was on tugspotters but seems to have vanisehd - good source of info.
