The Ingertre was a 3088gt Norwegian steamer built in 1920. She had triple expansion engines, and she measured 97x14x7 metres. She ran aground in January 1936 and later slid off and sank.

      

The wreck lies at the foot of a steep bank with the bow at 34m and the stern at 18m. The wreck is well broken, but large recognisable sections remain, particularly at the bow. The are plenty of swim throughs where plates have fallen away. The bow section retains its shape, and has a list to port. A mast lies across the deck and seabed. The rear half of the ship has collapsed, but large components such as the propeller shaft, four-bladed propeller, and parts of the engines can easily be seen. The visibility is good, and it is possible to swim round the whole wreck in a single dive.
