Photo Category: Wrecks & Relics
I was quite surprised to find an obviously old wreck in the middle of the port of Marseille. She used to be a French navy water tanker. After her discomissioning, she was given to Marseille fire fighters brigade who used her for training. After having been burned a number of time, she eventualy sank last August. Seen on November 6th 2007.

Thanks to Mejean for the information.

bonjour Pascal
thankyou for posting this interesting photograph

I had the pleasure of working in Marseille between Jan 2001 and March 2003 and was intrigued by the sight of SAHEL in the Port, used as you say for fire fighting exercises

I believe that she was built in 1952 as a bunkering tanker based at Toulon. Is that correct?

I shall post a photograph of her shortly
