White hull looks very much like Swedish company Swedish Orient Line (Broström) to me. One of 5: Thuleland, Tavastland, Timmerland, Traneland, Tundraland. A delightful picture. Regards, Stein

I stand corrected by you over A B Trifing being Swedish & not Norwegian, grey cells on holiday.(Thumb) Used to see some of this class down the med quite often. Great photos.
Cheers,

Great photo. The Wilson Line vessel looks like she has two Heavy Lift derricks, so it can only be the Sangro or Silvio.

The derricks on the Wilson vessel were called Thompson Derricks, I think , but stand to be corrected.
Cheers,
