Nice to see this old lady again. I saw her and her sisters PRINSES BEATRIX and PRINSES IRENE at Breeskens in the late 70s. At this time the reserve ferry was KONINGIN JULIANA.

Thanks for the export spotting Kyle, I knew there had to be a way to tell them apart!

Thanks for the correction. IMO updated

PRINSES MARGRIET had the four vent ducts at the topside of the car deck, PRINSES BEATRIX did not. That alone pinpoints that the IMO should be 6524773 for the ex-MARGRIET. BEATRIX was renamed MU PING, then scrapped in China c.2003.

According to most records she is the ex-PRINSES MARGRIET (IMO 624773) by the way.
