Carnoules was built by Büsumer Schiffwerft AG in Germany, and was launched in 1969 for the French company Fabre Societe Generale de Transports Maritime in Marseille. After an accident in Corsica she was sold to Norway in 1973 and repaired. The year after she was bought by the Norwegian company Det Stavangerske Dampskipselskap and renamed to Austri. Under a journey from Norway to Poland she capsized and went down under a storm outside the Sognefjord 19.September 1979. The wreck was later scrapped on site, but part of her bow and scattered mechanical parts and wreck debris rest today west of Byrknesøy on a depth of approx 20 meter.
