Lyngen

Troms,Norway

Lyngen was built at Trondhjems Mekaniske Verksted and was launched in February 1931. She had a long career, serving both as a coastal freighter, transport for the German Kriegsmarine, sailed as a Coastal Express and as a tourist boat to Svalbard. Her last years she spent in the fishing industry. She was condemned and rigged down in 1986, and the year after she was scuttled outside Harstad, more precisely 2.July 1987. According to rumors, diving has been done on the wreck, but we lack any detailed and verified information about this.
