WISSELVALLIGHEID

/ 4 / 3

The wreck of the Wisselvalligheid lies at a depth of 42 meters. The ship sank in January 1996. It was foggy day and the sea was flat when the 120 meter long Baltic Stone hit her midship on the port side. The Baltic Stone had been on a collision course for some time and didn't respond to the ship's horn, nor to the distress call via channel 16. The cutter sank quickly, but the five crew members still managed to reach the wheelhouse of the Baltic Stone. There were no casualties.

Particulars

The Wisselvalligheid is located at a distance of about seventy kilometers from Hoek van Holland. Book a boot charter to reach the location of the wreck. The visibility is quite good and it's wonderful to see this motor cutter from Goederede lying on the bottom of the North Sea, with the beam trawls still outboard. The wreck is completely covered with anemones in the most beautiful colors. The propeller lies at 42 meters, the deck at 32 meters and the wheelhouse at 28 meters. The wreck can be entered. The wheelhouse and the crew room are accessible through narrow entrance doors.

Warnings

The wreck of the Wisselvalligheid is only suitable for advanced wreck divers. Emergency number channel 16.
