It was named Globe IV and was equipped with both sails and a steam engine to use when the weather was still. At the end of the second world war the ship was sold to Iceland and named Siglunes SI 89 and the old steam workhorse which has powered it all those years was replaced with a 378 hp Ruston Hornsby diesel engine. In 1963 it finally acquired the name it has today, Garðar. It was a good ship and served it’s owners well for a long time. In desember 1981 Garðar BA 64 was deemed unfit for duty. Instead of sinking it a sea as was the custom in these days, it was and rammed ashore at Skápadalur valley in Patreksfjörður. Today Garðar patiently awaits it’s inevitable rusty fate in the sand providing tourists with a spectacular scene and just the perfect photo opportunity.
