It's not all that uncommon, though usually (smaller) sailing vessels are being used for the purpose. They are usually privately operated but financed largely, if not exclusivly, by government money - it's cheaper to have the kids make there own food than let them rot in jail.
I even know of instances where a vessel goes to Ireland and let the yongsters collect stones or shingles on the beach, to be taken home to the continent and sold to garden-owners, who wish to make there gravel path look more fancy. It all goes under the label "let them feel being useful for something" and it actually works.

Thank you Uwe for this interesting info, would then suit better in the Special Purpose Ships category... Haven't heard of that kind of use of a vessel before.

All the best,

Nice shot.
I am almost 100 percent certain, that she is (was?) being used to help delinquent youngsters to find their way back to the harsh realities of this world.
As far as I know, that is more or less her sole purpose in life today. What the somewhat unusual deckarragements might be good for, I don't know.
