It is time now for a very big “THANK YOU” to everyone who helped us in these difficult times.
We were very surprised how many people donated. In just a few days we were able to collect enough money to fill up our diesel tanks!
It is an absolutely great feeling to see that there is a community that has been building up around “Stahlratte” over the years and that we can count on so much help.
This community consists of former guests, crew-members and also friends and family.
A very big hug to everyone and we hope very much to see you all back here on the old “Stahlratte” (please not all at the same time😉 ).

Unfortunately there is no way to say right now, when Stahlratte will be able to make some money again.
So donations are still very welcome.
Please check the previous post below for the links.


Dear STAHLRATTE friends and fans!

We are on anchor in Isla Mujeres/Mexico since 8 weeks now awaiting reopening of borders so we can travel down south and get back to work between Colombia and Panama. We are now running out of resources and it would be of very much help if we could raise some money for our expenses through the crisis to be able to pay the running costs untill we are back to a normal life. The old Steelrat is in a permanent need of repairs and maintenance and we need to get our tanks filled for the cruise back to Panama/Colombia.
Any even small donation is very appreciated!

Ludwig, Anna and little (12 weeks old now) Yosue
