SC APA FLOW ORKNEY ISLA NDS, SCOTLA ND

MARKGRAF Max depth 46m SMS BRUMMER Max depth 34m

The Brummer lies on its starboard side and is in pretty good condition for her age. Underwater in reasonable visibility it is easy to navigate around her with the bridge and mainmast structure fairly intact. Both of the anchor chains run out and hang over the starboard bow, while a must see for all divers is the 5.9 inch gun facing towards the stern just aft of the bridge. Towards the stern, significant salvage damage has broken up the engine room section allowing plenty of chances to explore and enter the wreck.

The deepest of the battleships, the Markgraf is completely upside down, if anything she lies slightly on her port side. Extensive salvage damage can be seen towards the bow and especially aft of midships. Towards the stern and virtually on the seabed lies a row of intact portholes, and at the stern itself the tremendous sight of the huge twin rudders can be seen. Due to the Markgraf's relative depth, several dives are needed to fully appreciate the sheer size of this vessel.
