One of the most unlucky ships to sink in our waters, this 91M / 300FT, steel-hulled English steamer was on her maiden voyage between Portugal and New York with a cargo of wine, dried fruit and bales of cork when she sank in 1873. Unfamiliar with our reefs, the Captain edged his new ship towards the shore, where she collided with a submerged reef and ground to a halt. The wreck is one mile off the South Shore, in depths ranging from 10.5-21M / 35-70FT. Still visible are the ship’s huge steam boiler, parts of the wheelhouse, the ship’s steering quadrant, a four-bladed propeller and her rudder.
