Talata

Saint Kitts,Caribbean

Catharina II was a general cargo ship laid down by Van Der Werff Scheepsbouw in Westerbroek, and was launched in 1940 for the Dutch authorities. She changed name and owners several times before she sailed as Talata under Saint Kitts & Nevis flag in 1965. While at anchor outside Basseterra 24 October 1985, she developed a leak and sank. Due to her exposed location the wreck is pretty broken up, and the battered wreck rest today on a depth of 15 to 25 meter right outside Basseterra harbor.
