People sail on a sailing ship.

The three-mast schooner "Anny von Hamburg" was built in 1914 at the Lower Weser by the shipyard F.C. Lühring as a steel freighter. The quality, speed and elegance of these sailors was legendary. By 1938, 20 of these freight schooners had been built. Two of them are still sailing today, the "Eye of the Wind" and the "Anny von Hamburg", which is the most similar to the one of 1914. The third preserved, the former "Meta", today Brigantes, is currently being converted into a freighter in Trapani, Sicily.

The maiden voyage of the "Anny von Hamburg" led in 1914 to St. Petersburg, where the ship still arrived with the imperial crown between the masts. There she was surprised by the beginning of World War I, she was confiscated. In 1918 Russia gave the "Anny von Hamburg" back to Hamburg, where it lay until 1925.

From 1925 to 1957, the schooner sailed under changing names from its home port of Hamburg across the North and Baltic Seas before being sold to Scandinavia. In 1981, the proud three-master returned to Hamburg to be restored true to the original without regard to costs. Saloon and guest cabins were built in the former cargo hold. As a passenger ship she sailed on the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean routes. Germanischer Lloyd certified the ship as having the highest class and thus the highest degree of safety. In 1999, the "Anny von Hamburg" was overhauled again.

For 9 years she lay unused in the port of Leer, before Timbercoast found and took over her. Since 2018 Timbercoast has been operating the ship under the management of initiator and captain Cornelius Bockermann with the intention of decommissioning it as a freighter.
