There was another sistership, Velenje, but she endeed her career in 1998., and this shoot is from 2009. Of other vessels, Kranj and Celje do not match the letters, I am pretty sure that vessel on photo is Maribor, just to mention that all these long-lived vessels are now gone, with Kamnik last in the row for breakers.

[COLOR="DarkGreen"]Dobar dan Croship- what are those funnel colours on the ship? Please can you tell me if it was a Croatian company as I don't remember seeing them before. Many thanks, regards, Rick[/COLOR]

The pic was taken around 2009 /10 , she should be the ' Maribor ' of Splosna Plovba, Slovenia, the vessel was rumoured to have been sold to Indian interest

Funnel colour is something like grey / silver, as mv ' Celje', which see

Splosna Plovba funnels were always silver background until Slovenia left Yugoslavia, and their ships were reflagged during the war. They dropped the red star at the top, it was always a small star, as compared to other shipping companies of Yugoslvia.

Splosna funnels were always the same, red star symbol was only on the bow, after 1991. erased from there.
