Looking for ex-crewmembers of motortug “Johann”

by Hans | August 7th, 2013

On October 4th this year it will be exactly 100 years ago that the tug, then named Marianne was launched at the Bodewes wharf in Martenshoek, in the north part of Holland.

She was launched as a steamtug and sailed most of her lifetime under German flag. Later she was renamed Jason, Gebr.Cohrs 3 and in 1959 as Johann. In 1959 the steam engine was replaced by a Deutz RV6M545 dieselmotor. She sailed commercially until 2005, mostly in the Hamburg region. In 2006 she was bought by two tug enthousiasts and renamed “Alphecca” with port of registration Rotterdam. In 2011 she was recognized as a sailing heritage craft. For her 100th birthday we are looking for stories and photographs from people who sailed the JOHANN during her commercial life. If anyone has information please contact dick@alphecca.nl We will appreciate any reaction.
