“Greif” is a majestic brigantine owned by the city of Greifswald in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The ship is used as a training ship for maritime youth education.

Today it’s her 60th anniversary. All the best from our side!

The Greif was built in the Digital Seas hometown Rostock in 1952, so it’s a special honor for us to have this quite famous tall ship equipped by us with Fleetmon Satellite Tracking. During her voyages, the Greif’s office used to get lots of calls from friends and relatives of crew and guests asking for her position and schedule.

Thanks to Fleetmon Satellite Tracking, the Greif can now be followed on all her voyages, independent of AIS transmissions, even on high seas. Digital Seas provides hardware and platform to transparently merge AIS and satellite signals of the vessel into a constant and always up-to-date tracking experience.

The new Fleetmon Web map on the Greif homepage nicely shows the current position and last day track, so that friends and admirers can easily follow ship and company on all voyages.

Have a smartphone? Download the Fleetmon Sat mobile app for free and track the Greif on your mobile!

We’re looking forward to see her on the HanseSail 2011!
