Well that was quick.  :D

Smit Elbe it is. Here's a video of her being lifted back in 2004 after she had been sabotaged and sunk.

And here a general video of all the restoration and retrofitting that was performed:

Hello,

Of course not  and this actual livery is because she was previously owned by Svitzer.

I just hanswered not to win but because the assertion that she was not a former Svitzer was wrong.

Anyway as I received this picture from a friend who want to play we me "name that tug" and as she's a nice one for this topic :  so what's the name of her ?

Strange isn't ?  In fact she's not a Smit tug : forgery, counterfeit or just a Smit lover.

Like the guy who painted his old rotten car in red to imagine he drives a Ferrari !

By the way she's like an old Mercedes benz as built in Germany in 1960 and serve there for 24 years

Hello

One year without answer, may I suspect no more player ? 

The answer for this  strangely "smit colour tug" is the greek Christos XVIII (former German Hoheweg)
