Experience the historic schooner brig on a day trip or a Baltic Sea cruise lasting several days in the footsteps of the Hanseatic League!
The steel two-master with the characteristic square sails was built in 1951 at the Warnow shipyard in Warnemünde and put into service under the name "Wilhelm Pieck". Until 1990, it was the flagship of the GST naval school in Greifswald-Wieck and carried out training trips for young sailors.
After the political change, the ship was completely overhauled and rebuilt. Since then, it has been owned and operated by the Seesportzentrum Greif, a company owned by the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald.
Under the name "GREIF", it sails as a civilian sailing school ship with volunteer and paying co-sailors and sails to the most beautiful ports in the North and Baltic Sea from April to October: Ystad, Copenhagen, Klaipeda, Gdansk and other places are on the itinerary every year.
A sail area of 570 m², spread over 15 sails, allows a speed of up to 14 knots. The ship is equipped according to the latest safety regulations and has a sailing license as a sailing school ship. It is sailed by a professional regular crew and volunteer crew members from the "Rahsegler GREIF e.V." support association.
If you are looking for a special experience, the "GREIF" is the right boat for you. Incidentally, this is also possible without any previous experience: The experienced crew members of the team introduce new sailors to traditional seamanship step by step.
Welcome on board!
