Carlos was laid down at Fougner Staalbeton Skibsbyggnings Company in Moss, and was launched in December 1918. All the concrete vessels built at Fougner was meant for transport to Spain, but they never received the necessary licenses and ended up doing service in Norway. Carlos hit ground north of Jel√ły in November 1919. She was later raised and ended her days in Kjellandsvika outside Moss shipyard. Remains of a hull that is believed to be Carlos, rest today on a depth of approximately 5 meter in Kjellandsvik close to shore. Also see the wrecks of her sister ships Silvestre and Nicanor.
