Lady Laboe, built in Rendburg shipyard in Germany 1940. Originally built as a cruise vessel, she was brought to Cyprus in 2006 to be used as a diving liveaboard. In June 2014 she was sunk in the Moulia Paphos area as part of the artificial reefs and marine parks project.
At 21.5 meters in length and 5meters wide Laboe is a perfect deep dive with easy penetration through the engine room, saloon and bridge area.
The White Star previously known as Ivana Ivanova was part of the Russian commercial fishing fleet in the Black Sea.
She sank on February 18th 2007 during her transportation to Limassol when her temporary repairs that were allowing her to float slowly became undone. Since 2007 the sea storms have taken their toll on this beautiful wreck demolishing the bow section and scattering it along the sea bed.
