Cleona

Viken,Norway

Cleona was laid down at Borhaug in 1918 by Martin Brekne. She was put in service with transportation of wood around Lista, and was used during second world war in coastal traffic. In 1956 she was sold but continued her regular duty. In 1966 Cleona ended up in Svelvik outside Drammen, and was laid up in the late 1970s. She was bought by Anne K. Falla who had personal interests in the old boat, and anchored her up outside Holmen where she later sank. According to a diver report from 2019, the wreck has totally collapsed, and her remains rest today on a depth of 15 meter.
