Bulgaria,Black Sea

Pioneer was a small fishing trawler built in Burgas, and was launched in May 1964. She served under several owners during her career and after decades of service in the fishing industry she was taken out of service in the 2000's. Instead of being scrapped, she was rigged down and scuttled as an artificial reef and diving attraction by BSTD Group 2. July 2008. The wreck rest today standing on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of approximately 15 to 18 meter south of Saint Ivan island.
