POPPETJESWRAK

Nederland, Noord Holland

/ 3

DIVE SITE CLOSED. The Poppetjeswrak (the Puppet Wreck) is a spectacular wreck in the North Sea. Unfortunately diving is officially not allowed because it's located in a shipping route. It's an old sailing steamer, which stands straight on the seabed and is still reasonably intact. The bow, hull, steam boilers and team engines can still be recognized. The holds are open and still reveal parts of their cargo. Once upon a time masses of porcelain puppets were found, which gave the wreck its name, the Puppet Wreck.

Particulars

The poppetjeswrak is difficult to locate. The clipper is surrounded by high sand dunes and lies in a channel. It's located southeast of the Bruine Bank and three miles southwest of another large wreck, the Elbe. Diving takes place between 30 en 38 meters. Kind: Cargo ship/passenger ship. Type: Clipper / Sailing ship. Drive: Steam engine. Length 80 m. Width 8 m. Height: 8,5 m. Cargo: Small general cargo. Year of construction: Approximately 1850.
