Transas Marine will supply and install its Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display for the nonprofit GBA Ships e.V.’s service vessel Logos Hope, a deal in part financed by donation from the Transas Marine.

GBA Ships is a private, nonprofit entity registered in Germany, which operates ships that sail around the world to bring knowledge, help and hope. GBA pioneered the concept of using ships to transport literature, humanitarian aid and people resources. The company's history goes back to 1970 when the first ship Logos was launched. Today, the organization’s ships are well known for their work providing educational and Christian literature in ports around the world.

According to the agreement, Transas will deliver its Dual Navi-Sailor ECDIS 4000 Multifunction Display 26’’ in Premium Plus configuration, including Navi-Planner voyage planning software, Radar overlay and firewall protector.

“When we were contacted by Senior Management of the GBA Ships to support their humanitarian mission, it was immediately clear, that Transas wants to support the provision of knowledge and help around the world. We are very delighted and proud to help GBA and that they will use our product to conduct their navigation around the world, where such help is demanded,” said Ralf Lehnert, Managing Director of Transas Marine International.

Logos Hopeis the fourth ship operated by GBA Ships and was launched into active service on February 19, 2009. Since then, she has visited 70 different ports in Europe, the Caribbean, West Africa, the Middle East, India, Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia, with an all-volunteer professional crew and staff represented by 45 different nationalities.

GBA Ships’ operational costs are met by sponsorship of onboard personnel, general donations and gifts, reductions and waivers of fees by civic and port authorities, book sales, and corporate support from suppliers and companies in each port of call.
