Fylgja was a full rigged sailing vessel launched in Arendal in 1870 for Mr. Wilhelm Foss. She changed hands several times during her career, and was in 1883 refitted as a barque. In 1908 she was sold to Haugesund and rigged down as a barge. She was used until the late 1930's or early 1940's, when her old hull was deliberately scuttled as a breakwater outside Bast in Hvaler. The remains of her rest today in shallow waters northeast of the pier at Bast. Also see the wreck of the former barque Christiania.
