The Dresden was a 14690gt German passenger liner which sank in June 1934 after hitting a rock and subsequently being beached. She was built in 1914 and measured 165x20x11 metres. 

The wreck lies on a shelving seabed with the bows to the shore. The promenade deck is intact at the stern, but the upper deck levels and all of the hull forwards has been blasted. From midships to the bow is flattened. The Dresden has a 20 degree list to port. It is 40m to the promenade deck right at the stern, and 50m to the seabed past an impressive rudder.
