Hello everybody

Regarding earlier topics about the "Svolder"'s, I am now looking for some information about the general cargo vessel "Svolder" built 1941 by Nylands Verksted.

She came under German control when delivered 09.1941. Can anybody give me some information about her service during the war years? Did she sail under German flag and which company managed her?

After the war, she was mainly employed on charter to American and South American companies, among them, Grancolombiana in 1951/1952.

Sold 1955 to German buyers, renamed "Henry Boge". From 1959 "Christina Bischoff" - 1963 "Pedro" and 1965 "Machote".

31.10.1970. Sunk under tow on voyage Tampa - La Spezia after sale to Italian breakers.
