Thanks a lot for posting the picture of this to me long forgotten vessel.
However I found something in my files because a friend from the other side of the big pond remembered her:

Her specs:

Rebuilt: 1998 to 2001
Port of registry: Papenburg, Germany
Displacement: 177ts
Loa: 50m
Beam: 6.9m
Draught: 3.4m
Sail area: 630sqm
Mast hight: 28m
Main engine: M.A.N. 400 HP
Generators: three at 25 KVA (each ?)

HEUREKA was intended for the charter business in Europe, the Canary Islands and the Caribbean. Something must have gone wrong.
