Käptn Brass

[Käptn Brass] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 19 Feb 2007

Fahrgastschifffahrt Käptn Brass - Käptn (German slang for captain) Brass is a shipping company for passenger transports, especially for excursions of daytrippers. The company is located in Rostock-Warnemünde.
It is a white flag with blue horizontal stripes at both edges and a blue capital "M" in the centre of the flag. I have no idea, why there is an "M" in the flag, but nearly all shipnames of the company are beginning with an "M", perhaps the company has kept the flag of a former company, which existed already in times of the DDR.

It is a one-vessel-company, based already in Lübeck. Its only ship had been built in 1959 as RÜM HART and sailed for Wyk auf Föhr based Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei Föhr-Amrum (W.D.R.) until 1982 on the line Dagebüll-Wyk-Amrum, occasionally on day trips to Helgoland, also from Husum or Tönning.
Between 1961 and 1974 there had been also sails to Denmark and Sweden. In 1971 and 1972 she was chartered by Reederei Cassen Eils on a line Büsum-Helgoland and 1976 by HADAG on a line Cuxhaven-Helgoland. In 1981/82 it was used on the line Hörnum- Helgoland bei WDR.
In 1982 the ship was sold and renamed. The new name was BALTICA. In the following years she was used on the so called "butter sails" (German: Butterfahrten) between Neustadt, Flensburg, Kollund and Kappeln by various owners. Between 1985 and 1999 she sailed on the line Flensburg-Gråsten-Kappeln. Since 1995 she belonged to Seetouristik Kappeln. In 1997 the new owner was Heinrich Böttcher from Lübeck, who organised Travemünde based butter sails. Due to changing duty free rules in Lübeck she was sold in 1999 to Baltic Schiffahrt und Touristik GmbH Warnemünde and runs harbour trips in Warnemünde, the seaport of Rostock. Since 2000 the home port of the ship is Lübeck.
The flag ( see left image above) is white and displays in fly two chevrons of yellow and blue pointing to the hoist and a dark blue inscription "BSTW".
A similar flag ( see left image above) is that one of Neustäädter Seetouristik, a short living company based in Neustadt (Holstein) and one of the previous owners of the BALTICA. The flag was white and displayed in fly two chevrons of yellow and blue pointing to the hoist and a blue italic "B".
