I noticed that I had another photo taken nearby:
It clearly shows the VIGAN and the PANDO STRAIT.

Thanks Pieter. It seems to be VIGAN. When looking at sister ships, I found the same mast arrangement only on VINNI, but the last letter seems not to be 'I'. Therefore your propsal is most likely.

Based on what I can read from the name this could be the VIGAN, built by Gotaverken in 1967 for the now long defunct Ditlev-Simonsen company. IMO: 6709139
