GBA Ships operates Logos Hope. Serving others with ocean-going ships began in 1970 with the purchase of the original Logos. Since then the ships (Logos, Doulos, Logos II and now Logos Hope) have visited 500 different ports in 151 countries and territories and welcomed over 43 million visitors on board. Our goal is to bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world.
The ship visits each port of call for one to four weeks at a time and open the gangways to hundreds and often thousands of visitors every day. On average, over one million visitors have been welcomed on board every year! The floating book fair offers over 5,000 titles, providing many visitors their first-ever opportunity to purchase a wide range of quality literature.
An international crew and staff of volunteers live and work on the ship. Teams from the ship go into surrounding areas to supply aid and community care. In each port, the ship's crew partners with local community groups to bring hope and show love to people whatever their circumstance, culture or background.
