 The Roma was a 564brt Norwegian steamship built in 1891. She measured 50x8x5m, with a wooden hull and a triple expansion engine. She hit the Hestholmen and sank in October 1919.

The wooden hull has completely disintegrated apart from part of the bow and some ribs, but the engine, boiler, galley stove and limestone cargo remain. The vicinity of the wreck is also recommended for scenic diving. There is some tide to the N of Hestholmen.
