I found a picture of the ship, Claus Heftye (ex USA George F. Patton) built
in Bath, Maine on The Solem, Swiggum & Austheim Ship Index.Is this the same
ship that you mentioned as The Claus Heftig? If this is the same one, the
following information accompanied the picture.
The ship was built by George F. Patten in 1848. In 1864 it was bought by
Chr. Castberg, later sold to Fredrik Host (Sandefjord), sold 1873 to GB/USA.
