Hastier was a 749 GRT coaster which sank on her maiden voyage in April 1919.


Hastier was built as yard number 131 by Scheepsbouwwerf & Maschinenfabriek De Klop, Sliedrecht, Netherlands. Assessed at 749 GRT, she was powered by a triple expansion steam engine.[1]


Hastier was built for Lloyd Royal Belge, SA. Her port of registry was Antwerp. She departed Antwerp on her maiden voyage on 9 April 1919, bound for Brixham, United Kingdom where she loaded a cargo of coal. On 13 April, she departed Brixham bound for Barcelona, Spain,[1] with an ultimate destination of Valencia.[2] She was not heard from again, and no trace was found of her until 21 June when SS Courier found a damaged lifeboat 1 nautical mile (1.9 km) south east of Lower Head,[where?] near the Russell Channel Buoy. The lifeboat was landed at Guernsey. Captain Fierens and his crew of 16 were all lost with the ship.[1]
