Drammen

Viken,Norway

The steamer Drammen was built by Bergens Mekaniske Verksted, and was launched in 1875. She sank west of Steilene outside Nesodden after a collision with the steamship Union III 6.November 1914 loaded with beer, wine and general goods. She went down in an area with rough underwater formations and a search operation pulled out by divers in the early 1990s, soon showed the difficulties with finding this wreck. The wreck was found three years later in the summer 1993. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of  approximately 32 to 42 meter at Torskegrunnen, west of Steilene.
