MARVILA in original livery as VOLKSDORF

The beautiful passenger ship VOLKSDORF photographed in Hamburg. Built in 1956 for HADAG of Hamburg, the VOLKSDORF was one of five German ferries sold by HADAG to TRANSTEJO in 1977, when she became the MARVILA.
Under this name she is still operating on the river Tagus between Belém, Porto Brandão and Trafaria, and she looks great under TRANSTEJO colours...
