Dania

Kenya,South Africa

Dania was a general cargo ship laid down by Ulstein Group in Ulsteinvik in Norway. She was launched in 1965 and changed owners and names a couple of times before she started sailing for the livestock market in Africa. She was taken out of service in 2001 and sold for scrapping in India. Buccaneer Diving intervened in these planes, and prosed her to be sunk as an artificial reef. After several weeks rigging her down and preparing the hull, she was inspected and approved by Kenya Wildlife Service. She was towed out of harbor and scuttled approximately one nautical mile outside Bmaburi Beach 27. October 2002. The wreck rest today on a depth of 15 to 30 meter.
