Mediterranean Ferry EOLO

Having seen in other threads how much information comes out when a question is put I am asking on behalf of a near neighbour for any information on the above vessel.He travelled on it several times during 60/70's & was impressed by all the brass fittings & that passengers could view reciprocating engines working.Obviously similar to our Earnslaw on Lake Wanaka.I would think the vessel woud be fairly ancient by his description.

Spelling is indeed EOLO, have a photo in front of me & that is what is on bow.Photo taken in Naples 1974 shows a fairly small vessel,curved bow,well deck & I would imagine a crews focs'le.Bridge has four lifebelts mounted across it for I would say decorative purposes.KIWI

Yours is the same photo as i have in front of me.When I posed question thought it would be you who would reply.My neighbour thought she was built much earlier but the rounded bow cancelled out his date.Thanks for your help.Kiwi
