Gabriele Wehr is a RoRo cargo ship built in 1978 for Oscar Wehr Transport, in order to charter her to other companies. She is one of 5 sister ships built in the late-70s.

She was chartered between 1988 and 1989 by Brittany Ferries. During this period, Gabriele Wehr operated freight-only services on the popular Ouistreham - Portsmouth route.

Renamed Ramine, she was broken up in 2013, after having been chartered out to several operators among which Brittany Ferries and P&O European Ferries (1989 – 1992 & 1993 – 1999).
