Dolfijn from Zeebrugge is a former beamer built in Holland in 1960.

28 x 6,04 x 3,10 m
Tonnage 112 GT
Main engine 420 HP Bolnes from 1972

Lots of details and many pictures of the vessel to be seen at

Another picture of the vessel can be seen at:

On this picture name "Hosanna" is painted on the front of the wheel house, because the vessel "played" the role of the missing belgium trawler "Hosanna" in the dutch tv-programme Vermist to be seen at

Perhaps this might help some of the Dutch users of this forum to identify the vessel and its history.

This vessel is not the one built in 1956 in Germany, which later in the period from 1973-96 fished under Danish flag call sign OWGO. The former trawler converted to the beamer L 527 "Melina" was 315 GT, but it had a length over all on 41,85 metres. The vessel on the picture is not that long, and it is much smaller than 315 GT.
From the shape of the hull, the design of the wheel house (extended whale back added much later) the vessel is built later as 1956..probably in the 60's in Holland....but I do not know the exactly identity of "Dolfijn".

The "Dolfijn" is a guard ship for fishing fleets & as Milano said she was blt in 1956.
Owned by P/R Melina of Zeebrugge & 315gt.
Ex Melina-96, ex Katrine Ronn-88, ex Charlotte Nordfisk-86, ex Hodur-74.

I've seen this ship in Fraserburgh a few times , she is an ex-Beam trawler and by the style of her wheel house and hull i'd put her towards the end of the 1960's for build year but not sure. If I see her again i'll see if I can check out the builders plate.

I am not sure but possible is a fishing vessel 1956 build as HODUR by Muezetfeldwerft?
