Den 20. februar 1883 brækkede agterskibet af ved mesanmasten og sank på 26 meter vand.
Forskibet lå på grundt vand, og en stor del af dette blev bjærget.
Vraget ligger i åbent farvand ved et "sømærke", en rød
bøje med stålkæde, ud for Sandefjord.
Agterskibet er i dag totalt smadret, der er kun en enkelt skibsside der står hel tilbage.
