Norwegian mini-liner BRUVIK of 1949

BRUVIK is a beautiful 307 gross tons Norwegian passenger and cargo ship built in 1949 for regular service between Bergen and Mo, in the Osterfjord, a service she performed until 1979 when she was sold to Finland.
Dhe is a surviver of an important and historic type of local ship and so in 1994 there was the opportunity to repurchase her back to Bergen where she returned to the original name and livery.
BRUVIK is now part of the historic shipping waterfront in the port of Bergen, where I was able to photograph her in September 2008.
To read more about the BRUVIK check the company's official site here.
