In 1894, she was involved in another collision, this time with the vessel May, in Port Phillip Bay.
The Ozone was withdrawn from service in 1918 and was sold to Melbourne shipbreaker J. Hill in March 1925. In October 1925 she was dismantled and her hull was sunk off-shore at Indented Head to form a breakwater for small craft.
The wreckage of the Ozone remains visible about 50m offshore at Indented Head. The wreck is an easy shallow dive. One of Ozone's two anchors has been incorporated into an historical monument, which stands on the cliff-top near Taylor Reserve, overlooking the wreck, at Indented Head.
