|The MV ROGALAND was completed in 1929 for the Bergen to Stavanger coastal passenger service. She was sunk and seriously damaged in World War II when a nearby ammunition barge exploded which necessitated extensive repairs. |
In 1947 ROGALAND transferred to the Bergen to Oslo route on which she remained until 1954 when she was transferred to the Oslo to Sandnes / Stavanger service. Withdrawn from service in 1964 she was offered for sale and named TUNGENES. She was saved for preservation, after being laid up in Gothenberg by the Veteran Ships Association of Stavanger in 1990. She now operates as as a museum ship and occasionally offers sailings on the Fjords
She is seen here on August 05, 2012. During the late afternoon following the departure of the QUEEN VICTORIA she swapped berths moving across the harbour to take up the vacated berth. As she moved it was apparent some "Pirate Audition" photo shoot was in progress on the aft promenade deck!
