Amagisan Maru – 60m

Amagasan Maru, Truk LagoonLaunched 6th November 1933 the Amagisan Maru was built by Mitsui Bussan Kaisha Ltd, Japan.  She was originally built as a cargo and passenger ship to serve the Japan to New York Line.

At 7,620g.t. and 137m in length she was powered by a single 8,470hp Mitsubishi Engine.

Today she lies predominantly upright with a slight list to port, her bow in 42m and her stern descending to 60m.  There is a small tanker-truck on the sea-bed and hold #2 contains a great deal of cargo, including cars.  Both bow and stern have a gun.  Best visited with trimix.
