General Comments:

The Samudera (known as K.M. Samudera which probably stand for Kapal Mesin Samudera and may be translated by Motor Vessel Samudera) was still active during 1984-1985, when she participated in the Indonesian-Dutch Snellius-II expedition.

Samudera build and IMO confirmed in Miramar

Decommissioned date is uncertain. Miramar says "stricken 1974". NOAA holds data associated with "Samudera" from 1956-1983.

R.V. Samudera, Indonesia
The ship was active in the 1970s and the 1980s, but it is difficult to find info on her.
Info may be found in the NOAA data holding, since I found this link: http://catalog.data.gov/dataset/depth-observation-and-other-data-from-samudera-from-19750418-to-19750516-nodc-accession-970000

There is a photo in : http://mseas.mit.edu/Research/Straits/PDF/oceanography_18.4_wyrtki.pdf
And from this article I know that she was commisioned in the early 1950s.
