Polar - Collection C. Kleiss
At New Orleans as Bodo
        She was built in Norway with as Xenia for a Norwegian shipping company, changing shipowner five years after and being renamed Bodo. Despite changing shipowners three times, she kept that name, although only with the first one she kept the Norwegian flag, later changing to the flags of the Bahamas and Honduras. In 1925 she was acquired by Sociedad Anónima de Navegación Estrella, and renamed Polar, but only three years later she was sold to a Greek shipowner, who first renamed her Samos and a year later Ikaria. She was scrapped in 1928.
