Oksvald

Oksvald,Norway

The small coastal steamer Oksvald was built at Trondheim Mekaniske Verksted, and was launched in 1927 for the Norwegian company Bundefjord Dampskipbsselskab. She was requisitioned by the German Kriegsmarine in 1941 but survived the war and was delivered back to her owners after the German capitulation in May 1945. In 1974 she was rigged down to a barge, and a few years later she was sunk, most likely scuttled as a condemned vessel, just outside the small town of Asker. The wreck rest today outside Vollen on a depth of 20 meter.
