Øya

Agder,Norway

The small coastal vessel Ytterdal was built in 1916, and served as a coastal ferry and freighter for several decades. She was sold in 1973 to Lillesand & Topdalens Rutebillag AS and renamed to Øya. She was refitted and partly modernized and for the next three years she serviced the company route between Kristiansand and Lillesand. Her history then becomes a bit unclear. Some sources mention she was sold and renamed Costa Plenty, others say she was just laid up due to her old age. According to local divers, she was sunk by a local dive club in 1998. The wreck rest today on a depth of approx 15 to 20 meter west of Dvergsøya.
