It seems nobody answered. I will try to translate but only what I myself are looking for in an estate inventory as children and the final sums. Amiralitet = the top management of a country´s fleet.
”amiralitet -kvarterman” is, probably he had some  responsibilty to look after, perhaps the houses.  ”Junker” by Wikipedia: a young fine man.  But don´t know what a flag-junker is.
The 13th of November 1805 …. was an estate inventory hold after ”kvartermannen” at the Royal Shipyard Peter Wigren´s wife Madame Ingberg Wigren born Börjesdotter, who died here on October 13, leaving behind the mentioned man and the son the captain  and ”flagjunker” at the Royal War Fleet Peter Vigren, 38 (or 30)  years old, who was present here..
(After that is every thing  in the household mentioned, mostly in this order: metals, cloths, the wardrobe,  furniture, household stuff,  books and if the family owned a real estate.)
 Gold, a fingerring ……. +1 Bible   + 7 spiritual books ………..
Real estate: plot, house and yard à 14 kvarter ,  ½ Number 57
at …-street… estimated to a value of  83,6
Total inventory:  Riksdaler Banco                      107,27                                   
Dept: Burial costs  16 … + To the poor 1/8 % of total inventory  0,6,5
Total dept                                                        28
Retained sum for division in Riksdaler Banco      78                                                 -----

The 3 of Febr 1809   …..an estate inventory according to the law… after Amiralitet kvartermannen Peter Vigren, who… died the 13 of  November leaving behind his only son Royal flag-Junker Herr Peter Vigren…
Metal….. Fastighet = Real estate: plot, house and yard in the first kvarter = block of houses.
½ Nr 57 at Sjömansgatan (Sailerstreet) 83,16    ....
Total inventory                                 122,24
Dept                                               85
Retained sum for division in Riksdaler Banco   37,7,4.

Thank you so much, Birgit! Your translation gave me just what I was looking for. I hope you have a wonderful day. Stay healthy!
Flaggjunkare and kvarterman were both military ranks in the Swedish navy. Kvartersman is approximately the same as quartermaster.
Thank you, E Kippner, for your explanations!
