The MV Bolivar was completed in 1946, she was build by Akers Mekaniske Verksted and measured 135.7 m long by 17.5m wide and 8.3m high. The MV Bolivar was a 5,320-ton cargo vessel and at the time of its loss was owned by the Norwegian shipping company, Fred Olsen. In early March 1947 while on return from Buenos Aires to Dublin via Liverpool with a cargo of grain and bales of leather, the MV Bolivar ran aground on the Kish Bank during a snowstorm. The ship broke in two amidships, with the fore part of the vessel drifting clear and settling 100m away from the stern section.
