Trainee wreck dive 22m 3 Spaces available

The Duchess

This former railway steamer built at Troon in 1899 used to have the grander title of the Duchess of Fife. But either way, her career was brought to an end by a collision with a destroyer on 1 July, At the time, the Duchess was carrying Government stores from Newhaven to France. She sank so swiftly that nine of her crew were lost. The Duchess is 177ft long with a beam of 27ft, and now lies in 17m on a sandy sea bed from which she now stands 6m proud.
