                In 1902, the first full-rigged, five masted sailing ship, as
               well as the largest sailing ship the world had ever seen, was
             launched. The legendary Preussen dominated the seas, only to
             be gone in a few short years. Neither before nor since had the
                world seen such a magnificent sailing ship. Until today...
