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.

This wreck was the former water carrier Sahel of French Navy. After her scrapping by navy, she was used as trainfin ship for firemen of the Bataillon des Marins Pompiers de Marseille.
Very used, the ship sunk during a night at the end of August.
