Built as Newbuild No 288 she was launched on 23rd of December 1978. for Sibenska plovidba in Brodosplit shipyard. By aquiring name Zirje she became the first vessel of that series launched in former Yugoslav shipyard. Later shipyard produced similar ships Mljet, Solta and Bihac, which were usual Lake visitors, also for domestic companies (Atlantska plovidba, Jadroplov etc). Many thanks Jeff for sharing this splendid views.
