Welcome to a very special edition of the Maritime Gallery on the FleetMon Blog. In the past years, we have always presented you special, outstanding, extravagant, or just very beautiful ship photos of our appreciated Ship Spotters. This time, however, we are focusing on our FleetMon team. For (almost) every team member, we have been searching for “their” ships and thus compiled a very personal Maritime Gallery for you.
Thanks to our loyal ship spotters. Keep up the excellent work; your ship photos are the heart of our community.
In 2021, we started to put the spotlight on our passionate ship spotters. Each month, we showcase a different photographer of FleetMon.com. In April 2023, you’ll meet a maritime enthusiast from Sweden (User name: kevin_gothe) who joined FleetMon in 2022.
FleetMon is supporting the sailing ship SANTA BARBARA ANNA in an innovative project to enhance the onboard experience of participants in its sailing trips. The 44-meter-long three-masted topsail schooner was originally built in England and, in its colorful history, has been used for fishing around Iceland, tourist trips in Barbados, and social youth work. Today it is based in Rostock, Germany, where it is operated by a group of volunteers with various seafaring backgrounds to practice and promote maritime traditions and traditional seamanship.
Welcome to the Maritime Gallery, March 2023 edition, where we showcase the most giant cruise ships in the world. In the past month, we focused on the fastest cruise liners, but now it’s time to shift our attention to the grandest vessels that take passengers on unforgettable journeys.
These massive ships offer luxurious amenities and entertainment and a unique experience of exploring the vast oceans. So, let’s dive into the world of colossal cruise ships and the impressive pictures our ship spotters took.
So, thanks to all of our loyal ship spotter out there!

International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8th, is a day to honor women’s achievements and to support gender equality and gender justice. This year’s theme set by the United Nations, “Each for Equal,” calls on everyone to work towards a gender-equal world for all.

Exciting times at FleetMon, MarineTraffic, and Kpler! We reported last week on the significant acquisition of our company along with MarineTraffic by Kpler, which promises to shake up the maritime data market. Since the announcement, everyone has been excited about what this new partnership will mean for the teams and the industry.
FleetMon is currently supporting the research project of Dr. Alexandra Muscalus from the Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”) in Atlanta, Georgia. She uses AIS data from FleetMon to investigate the impact of low-frequency ship wake on shorelines in the far-field.
