BOS 400 (HDR)

The BOS 400, a French Derrick/Lay Barge that ran aground while being towed by the Russian tugboat Tigr on June 26, 1994.

 

The Tigr was chartered to tow the BOS 400 from Pointe-Noire in the Republic of Congo to Cape Town. The tow-rope broke loose during a storm and caused the vessel to run aground off Duiker Point near Sandy Bay.

 

Despite several towage attempts, the shipwreck was considered a total loss as salvors were able to recover little from the wreck.
