Built in 1972, the former training boat of the German Shipwreck Rescue Society "Siegfried Boysen" was stationed in East Frisia for a long time. With its excellent sea-keeping qualities, the Siegfried Boysen was one of the most popular ships among seafarers.
After its remarkable history, the Siegfried Boysen will serve as a museum ship on Juist. Built on a trolley so that the lower ship can be seen and "stationed" at the marina, guided tours of the former DGzRS ship Siegfried Boysen will be offered in the future.
