Simon Møkster's first ship, MOKSTEIN, 560 TDW, ex Nordborg, was purchased in 1968.  The ship was originally built for shipowner Jacob Misje, and was delivered from Gravdal Shipbuilding in July 1961. 
Simon Møkster travelled to Bergen in 1968, purchased the ship and sailed it as Captain to Stavanger. On the way douth the vessel visited Møkster, where his closest family, as well as friends and acquaintances, came aboard to see the ship. The ship was named MOKSTEIN after a small island outside of Møkster.
Nobody then knew that "MOKSTEIN" marked the start of a shipping company that now 50 years later still exists as a well renowned. When Simon Møkster established himself as an independent shipowner back in 1968, this was the first shipping company in Stavanger since 1955.  
Mokstein was sold in January 1973 to Wester Shipping AS, Tromsø.
