It's been bothering me as well. I think perhaps ex British. I intially thought she was ex Ellermans, but now I'm not so sure. Ex Ben Line perhaps?

Indeed very similar, however the mast/derrick arrangement isn't quite right, neither is the bridge deck.

Ciao Gp & Jim,
it looks familiar but am I stuck too.

Is that a blue or a green top on the funnel?
I know it appears blue but I'm not 100% sure ....?

Regards,
Rick

The colours appear to be those of Iran National Shipping Line, the former Arya Line and now Islamic Rupublic of Iran National Shipping Line.

Dave,
that was what I was thinking ---if it was a green top..
Not too many of their ships on photo & I can't place the origins of the builder - German maybe ?

Regards,
Rick
