Stolt Dagali was a 583 foot, 19,150 ton Norwegian
steel hulled tanker. She was built in Denmark by
Burmeister & Wain shipbuilders, in 1955. The Dagali
which was named after a mountain in Norway, was
owned by AS Ocean Company, her port of registry was
November 26, 1964 (Thanksgiving Day), while on her
way in a dense fog from Philadelphia to Newark,
N.J., the Stolt Dagali was struck by the Caribbean
bound, 629 foot, Israeli luxury liner S.S. Shalom.
The Shalom's bow sliced neatly through the Stolt
Dagali's port side, sheering off her stern. The
Stolt Dagali's 140 foot stern sank immediately
taking 19 crew members to the bottom with her.
Today, a 140 foot piece of the Stolt Dagali's stern
rests on its starboard side 36 miles out of Debs
Inlet, Long Island, and 18 miles from Manasquan
Inlet, New Jersey, in area known as Wreck Valley.
Her remains lie in 130 feet of water, but rise to
within 65 feet of the surface. Visibility on the
wreck is considered above average for the New York,
New Jersey area.
