IMO info
Information about the vessel may be found at IMO 5614581.
A ship can change name and flag state through time, but the IMO number remains the same through the hull's entire lifetime. As a result, it can be useful to identify a ship by using the IMO number.
English: Passat is a German four-masted steel barque and one of the Flying P-Liners, the famous sailing ships of the German shipping company F. Laeisz. The name "Passat" means trade wind in German. She is one of the last surviving windjammers.

Launched in 1911 by Blohm & Voss shipyard, Hamburg, the ship was used for decades as a cargo ship (nitrate carrier) until well into the age of steamships. In 1932 she was sold to Gustaf Erikson of Finland. She participated in "The Last Grain Races", famous races around Cape Horn by the last working sailing ships. Among her crew was the bosun Niels Jannasch who later became the director of Canada's Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. In 1951 Passat became an auxiliary sailing school ship of the German merchant marine. In 1957 Passat was decommissioned.

The ship is now a youth hostel, venue, museum ship, and landmark anchored in Travemünde, a borough of Lübeck, Germany.

Numera är Passat vandrarhem och museum i Lübeck.
