- this schooner brig with its green rigging presents a very interesting contrast to other sailing ships with their mostly white or brown sails.
- this unique sailing ship was created and built by the Grebe family with a large amount of work (approximately 40,000 hours). It set off on a round the world tour in 1991 and visited harbours and ports in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean
- the schooner brig is now managed by the "Restoration of traditional ships" association
- her comfortable interior and well-equipped rooms with oak, mahogany and teak fittings guarantee fun and adventure for 30 people. 135 metres of space are available for games and sport on day and week-long trips
- the crew offers passengers an attractive and active daily routine involving setting sails, steering the ship or navigating
- this schooner brig has shown its worth as a fast sailing ship in many regattas e.g. the Tall Ships race at Warnemnde in 1998, where she won first place with the barkentine "Mary-Anne"
- 2020 seen in poor state und without any masts in Rostock, should be converted to a motor yacht
