The SS Madrid is a beautiful wreck, where beginning wreck divers can make nice and calm dives. The SS Madrid was bombed in 1941 and caught on fire. Then it stranded on the Keizersbult. This is an infamous sandbank off the coast of Den Helder, where many ships found their downfall. The wreck lies on its keel and is already disintegrating. Yet there are still plenty familiar elements to see such as walls, steam engines and boilers. You can swim in between everything.
