Beautiful ship indeed! I like the "melting" style of superstructure.

Thank you for sharing Jadran.
Sister ships were "Lago Traful", "Rio Corrientes", "Rio Colorado", "Rio Carcaraña" and "Lago Nahuel Huapi".
"Rio Carcaraña" was damaged by british fire and lost during the South Atlantic conflict of 1982.
"Rio Corrientes was the training ship of the Merchant Marine School and so was the "Lago Nahuel Huapi" which is very special to me because while being a deck cadet, I crossed the Atlantic on her, for my very first time 33 years ago.
