I was not able to translate the info from Polish, but our friend Piotr came for the rescue! Between 1961-70, Poland built 33 fishing vessels for the Kingdom of Libya including two research and training ships Al Moktashef and Al Baheth. They were designed to operate in Mediterranean Sea. The ships had two holds cooled down to 0C , two refrigerator stores for galley and fuel stove for food. There were laboratories for research and cabins for 12 students and the crew.

These ships were 27.5 m long, 7.3m wide. Their 425HP diesel engine could speed them up to 11 knots.

Color Scheme:

Below water line: Dark red
Freeboard: Light gray
Lifeboat: White
Lifebuoys: Yellow (Never saw this color on buoys)
Deck equipment: Black

Unfortunately we do not know the fate of these ships due to the lack of data about Libyan fishing fleet.
