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[by whom?] to symbolize the loneliness of Namibia’s coast best. Her remains lie rusting in the sand, partially buried. The wreck was featured in the 2011 television series Wonders of the Universe as well as a 1990s documentary on another vessel lost on the same beach miles away, the MV Dunedin Star. She was later featured in the 2016 Amazon Video series, The Grand Tour.
