|Thanks, Uwe and Manfred, for the data and the convincing fotos and illustrations in the internet! As mentioned, GEFION is not listed in the book 'Windjammerparade' by H.J. Hansen and B, Wundshammer. I will change the data soon.|

In 1975 in US ownership operating in the Baltic, fate not known to me.
Here she is in Kiel on 27 July 1973:
