Nicanor was built in Moss in 1918 with a hull of concrete, and did service as a local freighter in Norway until her loss in 1927. She sank in the Skien river 9.June 1927 after first having run aground on Eikornrødbåen. After the grounding the crew abandoned ship, which continued her journey down the river. In the end Nicanor ended up outside Bøle Tollvakt, and sank on a depth of 3 to 10 meter. Only twenty minutes had gone since the grounding till she disappeared in the deep at the pier. Also see the sister ships Silvestre in Tjøme and Carlos in Moss.
