The Mainz is a side-wheel steamer built in 1928/29 for the Dampfschiffahrts-Gesellschaft für den Nieder- und Mittelrhein (DGNM), which was used by the Cologne-Düsseldorfer Deutsche Rheinschiffahrt in scheduled service on the Rhine. It was the thousandth ship completed by the Christof Ruthof shipyard and also the last paddle steamer built for the Cologne-Düsseldorf shipyard. The Mainz survived the Second World War as the only ship of the shipping company to be seaworthy, but was then so badly damaged in an accident on 12 June 1956 that the hull had to be rebuilt. Due to the high need for repairs and refurbishment, the Cologne-Düsseldorfer decommissioned the passenger ship after the 1980 summer season.
