    Ship Graveyards: Abandoned Ships, Boats and Shipyards |

    Ship graveyard: a location where the hulls of scrapped ships are left to decay and disintegrate, or left in reserve. Such a practice is now less common due to waste regulations and so some dry docks where ships are dismantled (to recycle their metal and remove dangerous materials like asbestos) are also known as ship graveyards.

    The SS America was designed by naval architect William Francis Gibbs and built in 1940 for the United States Line then renamed USS West Point during WWII, SS America was sold for scrap in the late 1980s but when the scrappers defaulted on payment and she was then slated to become a five-star hotel ship off Phuket, Thailand, renamed American Star. But stormy weather while she was under tow to the site in 1994 broke the tow lines and the ship ran aground off Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.
