The cargo ship «CHRISTOFOROS»


The cargo ship “CHRISTOFOROS”, built in Scotland in January 1950, sank in October 1983 at a depth of 43 meters in the bay of Panormou, off the coast of Skopelos, while transporting 2,600 tons of cement from Volos to Piraeus harbor in the way to Algeria. It is a modern shipwreck in excellent condition as until recently diving was prohibited because it is submerged in an underwater archeological site.
