SMS Markgraf

SMS Markgraf was a König class battleship serving the Imperial German Navy during World War I. This 175 meter long wreck is often thought of as the jewel in the Scapa Flow crown. She was scuttled in 1919.

Lying almost completely upturned in 45 metres of water, the wreck is a perfect Extended Range level dive for open-circuit divers and rebreather divers.
