Voici Bernadette


Adela Hagenah was built at Flensburger Schiffbau in Germany in 1965 for the company Germanischer Lloyds. She sailed for five different companies before she ended with an unknown owner in Bolivia in 2014. Under a journey from Haiti to Miami she was inspected by US Customs & Border Protection Agency and confiscated after they found a large cargo of cocaine hidden on board. 23.June 2018 she was loaded with concrete and towed out of the harbor where she was scuttled as an artificial reef. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck at the reef which is called Curtis Bostick Artificial Reef, southeast of Fort Pierce, on a depth of 20 to 30 meter.
