I have some more data about BOGATIR
In 1920-1 extant as
BOGATIR (1912) tug
213t 52,40x6,35m 200hp reg.Braila
owned Z.Scheinberg & Co.; Chisinau

A photo of her from is in
Christian Craciunoiu Low Danube Paddle Steamers Bucharest 1995

In this book there is another interesting steamer
CAETATEA ALBA built 1894
46,50x5,30m owned NFR
So look she as converted from tug into passenger ships

In 1930 register mentioned as built in Königsberg.
162rt 46,50x5,30x2,10x0,70m Compound 300hp=20km/h

She could be one of two paddle steamers built 1894 for Kiew
by G.Fechter, Königsberg.: NEVA and LERMONTOV ex YAKOR

More also to:
ANNA ex MATHILDA ex GEORGETA iron screw tug (1897) Cherson
11nrt 19,35x3,75x2,40x1.80 90hp compound = 12km/hzhhh
1921 reg Braila 11,5t 28nhp
1931 Mihail Daniel, Braila
1940 BUG (CNR = Cetrulul National de Romanizare), Bucaresti

EUGENIA ex MIR was later Soviet PETROZAVOTSK.

Thank you Andreas, very interesting plan this FRATELLI B.MENDL of 1894.

Actually, this is a privately owned ship based in Braila, Romania, which was lately seized by the russians. Also interesting to note that it is fitted like a tug, however it has a passenger cabin because she was used also like a pleasure craft. This is a typical arrangement for many ships based in Braila. Tugs were taxed less!

There are very few original plans of Romanian ships from this period. Was there also another sheet with the body lines? Would be very interesting for modelling purposes!
