Hi,
This certainly looks like a former Koninklijke Rotterdamsche Lloyd ship of the M.... Lloyd class, which later had Nedlloyd names. Looking at the funnel colours and the name with two short words, I suspect she could be the Singapore-flagged KOTA JASA, although that is little more than a guess. It could actually still be a Lloyd name, such as MARNE LLOYD. I hope I've pointed you in the right direction, anyway !

From her funnel colours I would say she is the Saudi Jeddah, completed as Madison Lloyd in 1960, renamed Nedlloyd Madison in 1977 and sold to Ocean Trade Agencies in 1981 being renamed the following year. On 28 July 1984 Saudi Jeddah arrived at Shanghai to be broken up.

I remember seeing a ship named Saudi Jeddah in KGV dock in Hull when the Lagos Palm/82 was in dock, the Saudi Jeddah had SEL on her funnel that was red white and blue, she looked very much like the ship above
