Olden

 

Various articles and books have wrongly attributed this name to both the "Chrisoula K." and the "Kimon M", but the "Olden" is another undiscovered wreck at Abu Nuhas.

 

The 213 m long cargo ship was built in 1967 in Germany. Perhaps due to navigation mistake the "Olden" ran headlong towards the "Kimon M." struck the wreck and sank on 2 February 1987. A dropped anchor was found at 55 m so may be one day the "Olden" will become a target for technical diving although another report says the "Olden" sank at the open sea at lat. 27° 31.2' N, long. 34° 17.1' E - approximately 14 miles east of Shadwan Island in over 1.000 m of water.
