Scuba Diving Site: HMS StubbornThe HMS Stubborn was scuttled for ASDIC purposes and is in magnificent condition lying upright with a 10 degree list toward starboard side. This wreck is 45 meters deep and a great diving experience. Here you can see the torpedo tubes, propellers, and three open escape hatches. However more than 15 minutes down there will require a long decompression.
A team of divers first relocated Stubborn on the 24th July 1994. Although charted, the wreck was found 200 meters off current charted position. Prior to 1994 nobody from the Maltese diving community knew that such a magnificent wreck existed so close to the Maltese shores. A total of 67 S-Class submarines were built: 29 of them were sold for scrap, 20 were lost during the war, 12 were sold, 4 were cancelled on construction, and 2 were scuttled. Luckily one of these is HMS Stubborn!
