Tyne and Wear HER(13871): Tynemouth, Hans Hoth - Details
Tynemouth, Hans Hoth
A 374T West German motor vessel or cargo steamer (NMR). The wreck lies at a depth of 90m and measures 44.65m x 7.54m x 4.06m. The ship foundered 9th February 1952 approximately 15.5 miles NE of Tynemouth Harbour Entrance while under tow for Tynemouth, having developed a list due to cargo shift further off shore in heavy weather. Built of steel in Stade at some time between 1940 and 1949 (but probably in 1945), she is described by different sources as both, a steamer, and an engine driven vessel. Because her identity has not been confirmed, the position of the HANS HOTH as derived from documentary evidence is recorded separately as 1525534. The NMR lists two numbers for this vessel NZ 68 SW 1 & NZ 46 NE 136.
