KUNGALAND was her real sister but also never under Greek flag.

Hi Wolfgang, Swedish Amerika's Maltesholm and Vibyholm were very similar but Brostrom's Kronoland was a better match, also being the only one under Greek flag in 1972. Thanks to Manfred for finding a photo of her as Aeolos. Best regards, Neil

Thanks NeilB and Manfred for identifying the ship. There seems to be no sistership so that she is most likely AEOLOS

Possibly AEOLOS (IMO 5196969) ??
