The Lehmann Timber was held captive for more than a month off the coast off Somalia.
The pirates were reportedly paid a ransom of $US 750,000 to release it.
After being freed on Tuesday, it headed for a safe port but has run aground.
The 15 crew members have reportedly been unable to start the engine for over a day and have sent out a distress signal.
A U.S. ship is said to be on the way to help.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
