Edson: I have followed your lead and had a look in the book "Japanese ferries" by Bruce Peter and Tsuyoshi Ishiyama. I do agree that the Kansai Kisen vessels look very similar to this mystery ship. By elimination I have concluded that this might be the ASAVA DEVI (ex-NISHIKI MARU), which was a Maldives-owned vessel I believe. She lasted till 1982, when she had a fire and was subsequently scrapped:

Rd77,
I am also very curious about the small passenger ship in the background.
In my opinion it's an ex-Kansai Kisen (japanese owner of ferries and passengerships).
Probably with colours of other owner.

Understand she did have several but minor fires especially in 1980 when she spent over 2 months at Keppel

Dear Chris, I came upon your pictures by coincident.
According to the German Wikepedia pages the vessel burned out again on a voyage from Jeddah to Singapore on 3rd July 1983.

I was working for the Danish owners and saw the Linda Clausen many times in Hamburg and in Bandar Shahpour, Iran until end of 1979.

Not sure about second fire, will try to find slide and scan for small passenger ship.

Didn't she suffer a second fire, which caused her to be scrapped so soon?
By the way, it seems there is a small passnger ship in the background on your picture! I wonder what her name is?
