SS Sauternes was a steamship built in 1922. She sank in a storm in the firth Fugloyarfjørður by the Faroe Islands on 7 December 1941; all 25 passengers and crew were lost. In the Faroes, she became known as Jólaskipið, the Christmas Ship. Among the casualties was Captain George Albert Perris of the Royal Army Service Corps, who was later buried in Klaksvík.

In addition to general cargo for the British garrison in the Faroes, Sauternes was also carrying 22,500 Danish kroner minted in the United Kingdom for use by the Faroese, since Denmark had been occupied by the Germans and was not sending any coin.
