Flora

Vestfold,Norway

The Barque Flora stranded on Fjæreskjær at Færder 18.December 1901 under a journey from Bristol to Kristiania loaded with coke. She was soon abandoned and deleted from the official ship lists as a total loss. In 1989 the diver Terje Gysler and his son found wreck debris, and it turned out they had found the wreck of the old barque. The few remains of her rest today on a depth of approx 6 to 10 meter at Fjæreskjær southeast of Vestre Bustein.
