Øygar Senior

Møre & Romsdal,Norway

Øygar sailed as a passenger boat in Iceland and along the Norwegian coastline until the German invasion of Norway in April 1940. She survived an engagement with a German boat 22.April, and was later requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine after Norway capitulated. The Germans put her in service as a guard boat and renamed her Bisam NB 07, and later to Vorpostboot V- 5507. She survived the war, and re-entered the duty as a passenger boat in the same company.After decades of service, she was towed to Moldvær south of Ålesund in Heissafjord 4.November 1983 to be scrapped. She later sank while at anchor and the wreck was abandoned. As late as in January 2013, she was deleted from the ship lists. The wreck rest today on a depth of approx 20 meter
