The Schwalbe was a 1178brt German steamship built in 1898. She measured 71x9x5 metres and was powered by triple expansion engines. She sank in February 1916 after a collision. The wreck lies intact on her port side with the bows to the N. She lies close to the Morild. There are strong tides and heavy boat traffic through the narrow channel where the two wrecks lie.
