The horseman - open ship
at 11.00 - 17.00
D / S Hestmanden was built in 1911 in Bergen for Vesteraalens Dampskibsselskab. In peacetime, the ship has mainly transported people and goods up and down the Norwegian coast. During both world wars, Hestmanden was used for the risky convoy voyage, but managed through two world wars and gained a reputation as a very lucky ship. More about the ship's exciting history can be read here.
There will be a separate exhibition on the boat honoring Fern Sunde. More about this exhibition can be found at https://www.vestagdermuseet.no/fern-sunde-krigsseiler/
