Red Eagle was built in Leith in England and was launched in 1888. She changed owners several times the first few years of her career. In the Great War from 1914 to 1918, she did service for the German "Kaiserliche Marine", and in 1924 she was sold to Norway. The old steamer sailed in the Norwegian home fleet during world war two,  which she survived unharmed. Under a journey from Stavanger to Sauda loaded with general goods, she hit ground 15.October 1957 outside Vormestrand. She was re-floated and taken in tow to Hellandshavn where she later sank. She rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 8 to 26 meter.
