She was based at Monaco and no more in service now I don't have pictures of any this three small Cers type. 

Cers DF19  U Marinu DF18 and Tramontana DF17  (19,30m x 5,5m x 1,5m) built in early 90'

There also the 2m longer, same builder (Plascoa) at the same time : DF 12-14-20-21-25-28-29.  In fact I just discorvered now that there are different types !
