The MV Bolivar was built by Akers of Oslo for the Fred Olsen line. She was a motor vessel grossing 5,230 tons and measuring 128m long, 17m wide and 7m high. When she sank, she was on her maiden voyage which took her to South America and on to Dublin via Liverpool. During a severe snowstorm, she struck the Kish Bank and broke in two. No lives were lost. The engine room was salvaged and in 1948 she was partly dispersed with explosives as she was an obstruction to shipping.

The MV Bolivar is a shallow but very enjoyable wreck as there is so much life (lobsters, congers, pollack etc) and so much wreckage to see. A one hour plus dive can easily be conducted and it is suitable for trainees. It is best dived on slack water.
