Question New Zealand coaster MV Maranui

Greetings:

I wonder if anyone here remembers, or is able to look up, the callsign of NZ-registered MV Maranui for me. She was launched in 1953 and sank in 1968.

She had the same owners (Northern Steam Ship Company) and same name for her entire career.

Thanks John. That's the one. Much appreciated.
Was 50 years ago this year she went down. Very sad story, but a great rescue of six of her crew by MV Mirabooka.
