A medium sized steel wreck lying very close to the house reef of Machafushi. It was purposely sunk in 1998 to provide divers visiting the region with a wreck dive. They made a great job of scuttling the wreck as it lies directly on its keel. The wreck has easy access to the cargo holds on both sides. On and around the wreck you will find a school of Batfish, pufferfish, boxfish and very large Lionfish. One of the interesting things about a new wreck / reef is the competition for space; algi, sponges, sea squirts and coral. Where the wreck is covered with these you will find very little corrosion.
