HMS Stubborn (P238) is a submarine wreck in Malta, located about 3 km north-east of Qawra Point. The wreck lies on a sandy bottom fairly upright and intact, tilted towards starboard side. Maximum depth is 56 m and top part around 50 m deep, making Stubborn dive suitable only for technical or very experienced divers.
HMS Stubborn was a S-class British submarine, 66 m in length and 7 m wide. Stubborn was scuttled on purpose by Royal Navy on 30th April 1946 as a submarine sonar training target.
Other submarine wreck dives in Malta are HMS Olympus and HMS Urge, both at 130 m depth after hitting a mine during World War II in 1942.

Comments and Ratings
★★★★☆ Historic wreck, however the site is somewhat bare given she was intentionally scuttled and having a submarine hull protecting the interesting bits. However, a WW2 British submarine is always an interesting site
★★★★☆ Cool wreck and makes an interesting change from ships and planes. It's the only submarine wreck at a relatively accessible depth in Malta, since the others are beyond 100m.
★★★☆☆ Nice wreck especially when vis is good. There are much nicer wrecks at similar depth though.
