"How the Vikings conquered Galapagos"
It seems that the name was ULVA
There he also states that Eilertsen has purchased the motor-schooner Ulva from R.O.Helgesen's Shipping Company in Porsgrunn, and that the planned date of departure is April 15. In the Řstlandsposten next day there appears a denial from “a very indignant captain Eilertsen.” He certainly has no wish to cooperate; Ulva has not yet been purchased. However, in a circular letter to the members of the expedition three days earlier, it was stated that Ulva had indeed been purchased for kr 57.500.

The ULVA, too large and expensive to maintain for the needs of the group, was sold to the Ecuadorian Navy, which renamed her PATRIA.
