The Motor ship "Anna-Sophie" was build in 1969 at the H.Assmann
shipyard, Norddeich, Germany. She is build of steel on frames for servce in the
north sea and completely
renovated in 2007.
The ship was ordered by Mr. Bohlen und Mr. Doyen, the two owners
of "Bohlen&Doyen Pty. Ltd.", a very well known company at the German north
see coast. The name "Anna-Sophie" originates from their wife's, Mrs. Anna Bohlen
and Mrs. Sophie Doyen.
The ship operated many years at the north sea as a surveying
vessel for the installation of underwater sea cabels.
During the extensive renovation not only the hull, interior and
main engine were completely overhauled, also the ship was brought up to modern
standards of navigation and safety. Comfort was increased to suit guests.
