DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of 1855 wreck of Turkish cargo vessel, located approximately 11.5 miles SE of St. Catherine's Point, which foundered after springing a leak in heavy weather. She had just been purchased by the Turkish Government, having up until that voyage been in British ownership and was en route from London to Istanbul to be delivered to her new Turkish owners, at the same time carrying a general cargo. Constructed of iron in 1852, she was propelled by both steam and sail, and had served as a Crimean War troop ship.
