Full-rigged Ship Bremerhaven ex Rochester
Built in Bath, Maine, U.S.A., this ship was launched in 1837 and named Rochester. It was then transferred to the German Shipping Companies, L. F. Kalkmann of Bremen and Heinrich Garrels, and was renamed Bremerhaven. Used as a ship for emigrés to America, it was notable for saving the lives of 14 persons in all from the French Brig Nouveau St. Jacques and the American ship Northern Light. In 1870 it was sold to a Norwegian shipping company and continued to sail under the same name until its last recorded voyage from London to New York in 1877.
