Wyvern is an 18 m open sea sailing ship operated by Stavanger Maritime Museum.
The ship was designed by Colin Archer on a commission from British-born Frederick Croft and was launched on 10 August 1897.
She sank in the Baltic Sea on 11 July 2013 during the 2013 Tall Ships’ Race. The crew was rescued, but a member of a rescue team died during the accident.
She was raised from the seabed in August 2013 and returned to Stavanger.
In December 2013, her repairs started at Hvide Sande Shipyard.
