|The VUK KARADŽIĆ was one of six sister ships built for Jadrolinija, Yugoslavia, in 1952/54 (the Vladimir Nazor class). We see her here as an excursion ship at the isle of Rab, Yugoslavia, in 1979, about six years since these 600-passenger ships were superseded by ro-ro ferries. She was marketed by Kvarner Express, the travel agency from Opatija, but was still owned and crewed by Jadrolinija, unlike her sister ship VLADIMIR NAZOR, which was bought by Kvarner Express in 1972.
Built 1953 at Brodogradilište Uljanik, Pula, Yugoslavia. 430 grt, length 54 m. Twin Sulzer diesel engines, speed 15 kn. 1988 sold for scrap to Brodospas, Split, Yugoslavia.
