Sv Gorch Fock (II) (°1958- Blohm & Voss) is the second ship of that name and a sister ship of the Gorch Fock built in 1933. Both ships are named in honor of the German writer Johann Wilhelm Kinau (1880 - 1916) who wrote under the pseudonym Gorch Fock and died when his ship, the SMS Wiesbaden, was sunk in the Battle of Jutland/Skagerrak in 1916.
The ship's figurehead was designed by Dr. Heinrich Andreas Schroeteler (1915- 2000), a former W.W. II U-boat commander and has been replaced on several occasions:
- The first albatross from 1958 was lost after a few years; its replacement was made of wood, like the original.
- In 1969, the replacement was removed and replaced by a figurehead made of polyester to save weight. This albatross broke off when the Gorch Fock was being overhauled in 2000. It was replaced by a new one made of wood.
- On 11 December 2002, this (new) figurehead was lost in a storm.
- Again, the figurehead broke off in a storm on 5 December 2003. On 24 February 2004, the ship was fitted with a new albatross, this time made of carbon fibre reinforced polyester.
Officially the sv Gorch Fock --under the command of the Naval Academy in Flensburg-Mürwik-- is a Type 441 class naval ship with the NATO pennant number A 60.
Regards,
Freddy.
