This boat, the Gardar BA 64 is the oldest steel ship from Iceland. It was built in 1912 by a Norwegian shipyard and used for fishing in the Icelandic waters.

In 1981 the ship stranded at one of the fjords in the north-west of the country and is still at this place today. The ship is slowly rusting away.
