This is a classic Norwegian small ship built by Nyland Versted, Oslo, Norway in 1907
The MV Haganes is a 109 year old former whaling ship. The vessel is in excellent shape after a recently completed major refit, haul out and survey. One in a long line of refits over the years. Her current owners purchased her from a couple who transformed her into a mini cruise ship which was used for a dive charter and luxury cruise charter. They loved and cared for her over the past five years while navigating the world and then health problems forced them to sell.
In 2010 the vessel was purchased by a survey/research company and had a complete refit for her to work in the deep ocean survey business. They installed a high end suite of electronics and went through every system on board. Research has identified this as a refit history Refit: 1928 / 1938 / 1940 / 1952 / 1965 / 1995 / 2003 / 2008/2010.
The HAGANES has had many lives and many names. She was built in 1907 as a whaling ship by Nyland Verksted in Oslo. Her building number is 168. She was delivered to her first owners H. Ellefsen in Mjoafjord, Iceland in March 1907 and named GUNNAR HAMUNDARSON.
Over the years she has had a varied and colorful history, including being converted to a yacht for the chairman of "King Oscar" Sardines. In 1938 as war was building in Europe, she was chartered by the Norwegian Navy and used as a watch boat. Then in 1940, she was taken by the "DIE DEUTCHE KRIEGSMARINE" (Nazi Germany's Navy) and converted to a patrol boat.
Around 1964, she was converted to a coastal freighter whose basic shape and ship layout endures today. From then until 2003 she had several owners until she was rescued and returned to the beautiful girl she once was by the couple who put her in charter in the warm and clear waters of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. The current sellers purchased her there and then crossed the ocean on her own bottom, to Mexico for the refit and then put her to work and she now sits in Freeport Harbor in the Bahamas. She can sail anywhere in the world on her own bottom and is a true blue water vessel.
And she is in excellent shape. In fact when I was contacted to list her I laughed at her age but upon inspection I was very surprised and impressed, she has been well maintained and it shows.
If you are looking for a head turner and a vessel with an incredible past history than this is your girl.
