The Pangani was a very large sailing ship that sunk as the result of a collision. She rises in places fourteen metres from the seabed and is broken in two forming a dogleg. Absolutely stuffed with pottery, when the vis is good in this area and it often is she is a stunning dive.

The stern of Pangani is the most intact part. The shallowest area of this is 56m. A mast lies right across this section. Going forward there is a breach in the hull on the port side where a mass of barrel shaped solidified substances have rolled out on to the seabed. The depth here off the wreck is 69m. The central area is well broken with the ships ribs sticking up and a mass of cargo of various sorts lying around. This includes glasswear, pottery ( Maastricht Holland ) and small millstones. The bow section is broken away. A German Company still retain ownership of the wreck and have requested ownership of the bell and builders plate through the Receiver of Wreck.
