Tourist

Møre & Romsdal,Norway

The steamer Tourist was built at Akers Mekaniske Verksted in Kristiania, and was launched in 1896 for  H.M. Iversen as a tourist boat. She was later rebuilt to a coastal freighter and during her career she changed owners several times. Last registered owner before she went down was Mr. Todal in Sagosen. Under a journey towards Sandøy loaded with  stone she hit ground and sank near Kvitstein lighthouse 6. June 1957. The broken fragments rest today together with the remains of the coastal freighter Guno on a depth of 15 to 20 meter.
