Gert Hansen


Gert Hansen was built in Hamburg in Germany, and was launched in 1955. Her history is rather straightforward as she did duty as a small freighter until her fatal accident 8.April 2001. On a journey towards Sjursøya in Oslo loaded with salt, she went down with two men of her crew  on the east side of Håøya after a collision with a navigation light nearby. Two crew members survived the accident, while the captain was later found floating dead in the water, and divers brought the other casualty up from the wreck the following day. The wreck of Gert Hansen rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of approximately 50 to 70 meter north of Oscarsborg.
