Steamships from Norway

By

The first steamship built in Norway was the SS King Ring. The steamship was intended to operate on the river between Hønefoss and Tyrifjorden, but it was soon replaced by a larger steamship. The Paddle Steamship Skibladner is probably the most famous steamship in Norway today. Norway have some fascinating steamships.
Steamship Oster was a reliable and popular ship and she had only two captains for the first forty-four years. It was evident that those who signed on stayed aboard until they retired. The ship was confiscated and use by the Germans during the the Second World War, but after the war she was repaired and sailed on her routes until she became the only coal-fired steamer in the port of Bergen.
