Good afternoon,
Yes it looks like the Boucraa. There were 3 sister ships as you rightly mentionned, Boucraa, Benguerrir & Youssoufia, belonging to Marphocean a subsidiary of OCP (Office Chérifien des Phosphates) all three were operated from Paris in the Unitramp pool first, then on long time t-c to Unitramp Ltd, then sold to an American Greek owner, Lygnos Bros. sometimes in 1995-97. At the death of M.Lygnos, there were many problems and, as far as I know, the company went bust. By now, I suppose that these 3 excellent vessels have ended up there life somewhere around Alang.

Seems to be one of them. I have photographed BOUCCRA at Casablanca and BENGUERIR at Port Manatee, FL.
Look at this slide of BOUCCRA

for comparison, distances are very similar
