Very similar in appearance to the Thames excursion vessel Princess Pocahontas, currently being used as the Tilbury-Gravesend ferry.

Princess Pocahontas was built in Rendsburg as the Kieler Verkehrs-AG ferry Laboe in 1962 but is remarkably similar to the vessel above.

Laboe-Pocahontas has been built by Kröger shipyard - there where close business links to the Husum shipyard, so that might explain the similarity in design.
Both Binz and Laboe had several sisters
