Category:Ship graveyards

Ship graveyards or ship cemeteries are places where shipwrecks have accumulated. They can develop from vessels lost in areas where navigation is difficult, vessels sunk in battle, vessels intentionally sunk (e.g., the German fleet in Scapa Flow after World War I) or vessels abandonned for decay.

This category is not intended for scrapyards: Scrapyards are places where ships are scraped ("broken up" and its components re-used or sold); although scrapyards are sometimes also called "ship graveyards", please do not sort them into this category.
