Albatros

Argentina,South America

Albatros was a fishing boat built by Costaguta in Tigre, Buenos Aires, and was launched in 1967. She served in the fishing industry until her owner got in financial problems in the 1990's, and was laid up and abandoned in Puerto Madryn. After years laying idle and slowly decaying, she was taken over by the local authorities and scuttled as an artificial reef and dive attraction outside the harbor in Golfo Nuevo 22. September 1998. The wreck rest today standing on her keel with a slight listing like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 25 to 30 meter. Also see the wreck of Antonio Miralles.
