Grønsund

Møre & Romsdal,Norway

The ferry Sallingsund was laid down at Søren Larsen in Nu\ykøbing in Denmark. She was launched in 1924, and for the next decades she served several ferry routes in Denmark. She survived second world war unharmed, and was in 1946 sold to Norway. She was renamed to Grønsund and was used as a ferry in western Norway until 1961. From 1961 to 1992 she was used as a work ship in various roles, extensively used by the Norwegian Public Road Administration ( Statens Vegvesen ) in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1992 she was deleted from the official ship lists. For unknown reasons, she was sunk, deliberately or not, and the wreck was found in 2017. The small ferry rest today on a depth of approx 75 meter.
