Garðar BA


Garðar BA is Iceland's oldest steel ship now placed on the beach near Patreksfjörður. The ship is a popular stop for travellers. The peculiar location of the ship and it's industrial and rustic surface makes it an interesting photography location. Originally the ship came to Iceland during WWII and got the name Siglunes SI 89. In 1963 the ship's engine was recplaced and it's name changed to Garðar BA 64. In 1981 the ship was in bad condition and declared unsafe for service. It now lies in Skápadalur in Patreksfjörður in a shallow shore.
