The 400-ton cargo ship MV Superior Producer was built in 1957 in the Netherlands. It measures roughly 50 meters in length with a beam of approx. 8 meters and an 2.5 meters draft. On the morning of September 30, 1977, Superior Producer entered St. Anna Bay to load its cargo with destination Venezuela. The cargo ship was stuffed well beyond capacity with whiskey, perfume, clothing and bags. Complications began as soon as the cargo ship left. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to right the ship, it was clear: Superior Producer was going down.
Nowadays, Superior Producer is the wreck that is most considered a must to explore. And it’s no wonder, because with over 40 years of growth, the MV Superior Producer is an amazing artificial reef site, home to numerous colonies and different species of corals, sponges, gorgonians and sea whips. Because of this, it is a natural attraction for schools of predatory fish such as tarpon, barracuda, snappers and jacks. With over 50 meters in length, it is definitely a sight to behold at the bottom of the sea. As you approach it, at a depth of 35 meters, you will begin to see its vast shadow taking shape….
