Icebreaker 'Stephan Jantzen' in Rostock, Germany

This icebreaker was built in 1967 and is named after the sea rescuer Stephan Jantzen (1827-1913). The ship is off duty now. Although there were plans to convert the ship into a luxury icebreaker for private tours to the Arctic and the Antarctic it is still waiting for a new assignment at Rostock City Harbour.
