Additional Information originally built as a deepsea trawler, was laid up in 1973 and then bought by Alan W. Smallwood, who wanted to convert the ship extensively. In 1977, however, he had to sell the ship due to illness. In 1984/85 the ship was converted into a 3-mast topsail schooner in Padstow (Cornwall). In 1993, the ship was purchased by Joseph Maria (Joey) Kelly and had renovated and rebuilt it for the large family. Since the family could rarely use the ship due to many commitments, the ship was operated by the Rostock club "Odin 1 e.V." from 2000 to 2013. Since 2014, the present operator has been taking care of the ship. - detailed history: see: "https://www.santa-barbara-anna.de/index.php/en/geschichte".
