Siggen

Vestland,Norway

The steamer Siggen was built in Sunderland in England, and was launched in 1887. Her original name and identity is a bit unclear, but she was sold to Norway in the early1890s. . She went down at Marstein lighthouse in 1892, on her first voyage for her new Norwegian owners in Bergen. This of course was a great loss for the company. From what we can see from historical documents, it looks like she might have been the first ship bearing that name, but was "forgotten" due to her loss so quickly after purchase. The few remains of her rest today northeast of the reef at Marsteinen lighthouse on a depth of approximately 33 to 40 meter.
