The SEUTE DEERN was built in 1919 at the Gulfport Shipyard in Mississippi, USA. She was owned in sequence by several owners, as wood transporter and freighter, until she came in 1972 to the German Maritime Museum (Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum) in Bremerhaven. She has been a museum ship with an on-board restaurant since, until in March 2020 she was towed out of the harbour for break-up. More information on her (in German) is in this wikipedia article on the SEUTE DEERN.
