Garðar BA 64

Launched on the same year of Titanic, Garðar BA 64 is the oldest steel ship in Iceland. It was constructed in Norway in 1912 as a state-of-the-art at the time whaling vessel. The hull was specially reinforced to break through the icy northern seas in which it operated and the powerful engine kept the boat sailing even in wild waters. Garðar BA 64 is beached on Skápadalur Valley since 1981.
