HISTORY

  • Launched: December 15, 1958 at the Neuenfelde, Germany shipyard of shipbuilder J.J.  Sietas Schifiswerft.

  • 1969: Sold to Trans Caribbean Lines (Miami, USA) but registered in Liberia.

  • January 9, 1972: Rocked by an explosion and then swept by an ensuing fire while moored at Puerto Limon, Costa Rica.

  • October 1, 1976: The gutted freighter was stripped of her superstructure and later scuttled as an artificial reef


Name History:

  • Marie Horn (1958)

  • Deep Freeze (1969)


Divesite:

The wreck of the Deep Freeze rests in 135 feet of water with the top of her hull rising to within 110 feet of the surface. While relatively intact, the freighter’s stern was twisted from the remainder of the hull by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. There are several other wrecks in close proximity to the Deep Freeze, including the St. Henry's Express and the Pimelious. Coincidentally, the Deep Freeze now rests approximately 12 miles north of the Ultra Freeze, another reefer built by J.J. Sietas at the same shipyard.
