Jay Scutti

This 95 foot Aruba harbor tugboat was built in 1961 in the Netherlands. Her original name was Arikok after the first settlers of Aruba. The Arikok was caught while on a marijuana smuggling mission and confiscated. She was later purchased at auction by a local businessman and renamed Jay Scutti, in memory of his son.

The wreck was sunk as an artificial reef on September 19, 1986. The Jay Scutti is 95' long and sits upright with the bow pointing north. The Scutti is one of 4 wrecks in a line. The Pride to the South and the Tracey and Merci Jesus to the North. She is encrusted with invertebrates, sponges, hydroids and tunicates making this a favorite wreck for herbivorous fish like parrots. Nurse sharks are often found napping under the stern of this wreck.
