Zenobia - Background Story by Norbert Probst

On Saturday, the 7th of June 1980, the Zenobia ferry, with a length of 178 Meter, sank in cause of a computer mistake during her maiden voyage . The ship was fully loaded with trucks.
Today it is the most popular wreck for divers at the Mediterranean sea and rests in a depth of 42 in front of Larnaca harbor.
