Hello Manfred,
Thank you for your information, then only the IMO number is missing,
Many Greetings,
Manfred Christian

A nice photo of WESERLAND here but also without a IMO Number, 5086255 is not correct:

@ Manfred Christian:
Your photo and details are correct, WESERLAND ex MARIE SCHWINGE built 1938 by Lühring as last Schooner. Registered owner in GL Register 1960 was Hans Trüper, Brake, homeport was Bremen.
Good documentation in Detlefsen`s Vom Ewer zum Containerschiff.
Btw, Miramar is far from complete....

The 1921 built here as DANKWART:

Hello Arne
My father he drove on the Weserland from 6.8.63-14.2.65 Distinguishing Signal DDOS, 240 BRT, owner Ernst Otto Bürger.
In the ship list of the German shipping companies from 1964, the Weserland ex Marie swing 1938 is listed as described in my photo.
The photo shown by you shows the Weseland as Marie Schwinge.
What is missing in your link is the name Weserland she must have had before 1969.
Many Greetings,
Manfred Christian

Hello Manfred,
I'm sure your picture shows the 1921 Wewelsfleth built EMMY FRIEDRICH which was sold in 1927 and renamed MARIE SCHWINGE.
