I know I'm a bit behind Henk!! But this one looked interesting and you were short of information......

Now I don't think she was a "True" Hurtigruten vessel. I can only find one reference to her being Coastal and that was in September 1909. As you mention she was built for another route and seems to have spent mose of her time operating between Trondheim, Bergen and Newcastle.
Although I'm not sure I would have liked to be on her crossing the North Sea in Winter.......

Her decks look a bit exposed but I suppose she is similar to many vessels of the period.
So what can I add.

687 Tons Net.
Dimensions. 225.0 x 30.2 x 14.4 Feet.
Txp Engine of 182 NHP by her Builders.

She was sold in 1919 to a Spanish Company who seemed to be on a buying spree, to replace tonnage lost during the First War, perhaps and I would imagine they were paying good prices!!
The Company was based in Barcelona and called "Hijos de Jose Tanya S.enC" and they renamed her CAPITA REVUELTA. They got another 10 years out of her before scrapping her in 1929.

In 1924 Tanya had a fleet of eleven ships, with the oldest dating from 1881 and only three built after 1900. (Two of those in 1915) By 1929 they appear to have been down to three or four ships.
