The MV Haganes is a 109 year old former whaling ship. The vessel is in need of some TLC and has not been in service for about 5 years. That would include a haulout and bottom painting and going through the various on board systems. Her current owners purchased her from a couple who transformed her into a mini cruise ship and cruised the world with her and used her for a dive charter and luxury cruise charter.

In 2010 the vessel was purchased by a survey/research company and had a complete refit for her to work in the deep ocean survey business. They installed a high end suite of electronics and went through every system on board. Research has identified this as a refit history Refit: 1928 / 1938 / 1940 / 1952 / 1965 / 1995 / 2003 / 2008/2010. The owners have acquired a larger vessel and are therefore placing the Haganes up for sale.

The HAGANES has had many lives and many names. She was built in 1907 as a whaling ship by Nyland Verksted in Oslo. Her building number is 168. She was delivered to her first owners H. Ellefsen in Mjoafjord, Iceland in March 1907 and named GUNNAR HAMUNDARSON. Over the years she has had a varied and colorful history, including being converted to a yacht for the chairman of "King Oscar" Sardines. In 1938 as war was building in Europe, she was chartered by the Norwegian Navy and used as a watch boat. Then in 1940, she was taken by the "DIE DEUTCHE KRIEGSMARINE" (Nazi Germany's Navy) and converted to a patrol boat. Around 1964, she was converted to a coastal freighter whose basic shape and ship layout endures today.

From then until 2003 she had several owners until she was rescued and returned to the beautiful girl she once was by the couple who put her in charter in the warm and clear waters of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. The current sellers purchased her there and then crossed the ocean on her own bottom, to Mexico for the refit and then put her to work and she now sits in Freeport Harbor in the Bahamas. She can sail anywhere in the world on her own bottom and is a true blue water vessel.

If you are looking for a head turner and a vessel with an incredible past history than this is your girl.
