Description

The Eduard Bohlen was a ship that was wrecked on the Skeleton Coast of German Southwest Africa (now Namibia) on 5 September 1909 in a thick fog. The wreck now lies in the sand a quarter mile (0.4 km) from the shoreline.

The ship was a 2,272 gross ton cargo ship with a length of 310 feet. In September 1909, she ran aground in thick fog and was wrecked at Conception Bay while on a voyage from Swakopmund to Table Bay. This wreck is said to symbolize the loneliness of Namibia’s coast best. Its remains lie rusting in the sand, partially buried.
