Quinette de Rochemont was built by Ateliers & Chantiers de la Loire in Nantes, and was launched in 1911. She was extensively used in the fishing industry until she was sold in the 1950's. She changed both name and owners a couple of times, before she ended up literally as a floating wreck in the late 1960's. She was bought in 1967 and used in the Caribbean waters until she was laid up in Fort de France in 1984. In a joint co-operation between the Regional Tourism Committee and dive centers, she was scuttled in 1993 as an artificial reef and dive attraction. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 32 to 40 meter. Also see the wreck of the steamer Roraima.
