Lulu

Alabama,USA

Ingeborg was a general cargo ship laid down by N.V. Hoogezand Scheepswerf, and was launched in July 1972 for the German company Kustenschiffahrt Bauer & Hauschildt in Hamburg. She changed both names and owners several times during her career, until she sailed as Yokamu for the company Bernuth Agencies Incorporated in St. Vincent & Grenadines. Her history between 1999 and 2012 is a bit clouded, but she was stricken from the ship lists in 2013. She was renamed to Lulu and scuttled as an artificial reef 26. May 2013, some seventeen nautical miles south of Perdido Pass in Orange Beach. The wreck rest today on a depth of 14 to 32 meter.
