Dema Trader

The DEMA Trader (formerly known as the GGD Trader) is a 165-foot-long freighter in 80 feet of water about three and one-half miles off Key Biscayne.

The ship was seized by U.S. Customs for carrying drugs, and was renamed DEMA Trader after the Dive Equipment and Marketing Association annual convention held in Miami Beach on October of 2003. She was sunk October 28, 2003 during the trade show.

The ship is keel down in the sand with the stern lying in 80 feet of water and the bow in approximately 75 feet of water. Large openings were cut in the sides of the superstructure to allow safe penetration dives into the former galley and cabin areas. Tons of concrete culvert pipes and junction boxes were loaded into the ship’s cargo hold, creating ballast in case of storms, and providing more habitat than just an open cargo hold.
