The Rotor ship Baden-Baden was the invention of German Anton Flettner The rotors were actually more effective on this ship than the sails they replaced, since it could tack to 25 degrees from windward while the original schooner could only tack to 45 degrees. But the era of new commercial sailing ships was ending  

Photos submitted by Mike Dirk taken by his grand father-in-law in the 1920's. There was two photos of the Baden-Baden, a rotar sailing ship out of Hamburg during the era
