BVT Chartering und Logistics commences salvage of the Seute Deern

BVT Chartering und Logistics GmbH has been commissioned by the Deutsches Schifffahrtsmuseum to salvage the Seute Deern, which sunk in the Bremerhaven Museum port on 30 August 2019.

The four-masted gaff schooner, which was built in the US state of Mississippi in 1919 was upgraded by Blohm+Voss in Hamburg into a barque with a steel rigg in the 1930s. During this reconstruction, the tall ship also received its distinctive figurehead. After an eventful history, most recently as a freight-transporting training vessel and as a hotel and restaurant vessel, the ship has been a fixture at Bremerhaven’s museum port since 1966.
