That Quo Vadis used to be one of my favourites when she came down here, sister boat to Stephens if I remember.
None of them come close to the Sette Mari though :D

That third boat looks a bit like the 2nd Coronella but seems too small to be her.
Or the Pegwell Dawn/ 1st Orcades Viking but she was apparently scrapped in the mid-nineties.

Must admit that I did think it was the Coronella but just not sure enough. The last Coronella is still fishing out of Wavis Bay Namibia and still has that "odd" tank aft of the wheelhouse !!

The Quo Vadis was not the sister ship to Stephens
The sister ship to Stephens was called Spes Magna
The were owned by the McCullough brothers
Bobbie went on to own the Voyager K, now sold to Peru, I think
A new Voyager K is currently under construction
and Sammy now owns the Stephanie M

I understand that the new Voyager is ready for handover.
I wish Arnold and Robert all the best on their new vessel
