Saint Helena

Portzic was a fishing vessel built by Chantiers Albert Peron, and was launched in 1964. She served in the fishing industry until she was confiscated and laid up in Jamestown after the owner was unable to pay his bills. Since no one had any real interest in the old vessel, she was scuttled as an artificial reef outside Lemon Valley in 2008. The wreck rest today on a depth of 20 to 25 meter next to the wreck of the former trawler and drug runner Frontier who was scuttled in 1994. Also see the wrecks of Bedgellet, RFA Darkdale, Papanui and the schooner Spangereid.
