does anyone know if she is still around?

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.

Uwe is right.
GEFION ex KAREN SORENSEN ex AMELIA built in 1894 at Solvesborg, Sweden.
In 1975 in US ownership operating in the Baltic, fate not known to me.
Here she is in Kiel on 27 July 1973:

That looks like the 2 masted topsail schooner (not brigantine) GEFION, built 1894 in Sweden as Amelia. under german flag in 1972. later spanish flag, gone before the end of the century, as afar as I know.
