George M Livanos was built in 1928 in Sunderland and was sold in 1928 to Deutche Levante Line (DLL). After the outbreak of world war two she was requisitioned by the German Kriegsmarine. Little is known about her war years, and she was laid up in Grimstad after a grounding in 1945. Two years later it was decided to scrap her, and under tow by two tugboats she sunk outside Hesnes 14.September 1947. Totally scrapped on site according to several sources, and reports from divers state that some scattered wreck debris has been seen on the salvage site.
