History The remains of this 26.181 BRT wreck is one of the largest wrecked wrecks in the Red Sea! This 174.58m long general cargo carrier was built 1972 at Mihara in Japan under the name Ryusei Maru.

The two six-cylinder diesel engines allowed this 24.85m wide ship with its 11,600 BPS a speed of 17 knots! In terms of design, there are five loader spaces in front of the bridge superstructures. Four high crane systems were installed in front of the bridge superstructures at the rear, so that freight could also be transported in ports where there were no cranes.
Before they were lost, the Ryusei Maru had had a lot of owners who also renamed it again and again. The Ryusei Maru of the Aksonas Shipping Co. Ltd. belonged. In Limassol on Cyprus. She had bought it in 1996 for 1.36 million pounds sterling, reputed in million hope and insured for 4.1 million pounds sterling ......

Only six weeks later-on the morning of June 20, 1996-she murmured with a load of 26,000 tons of potash and phosphates for Taiwan from Aqaba in Jordan to Nabq-ca. Five kilometers north of Sharm el Sheikh on the coast of the Sinai Peninsula as a total loss on the reef near Gamila ....
The visibility deteriorated drastically, so that no counter-measures were possible. According to the "Casualty Report" of Lloyds in London on June 24, 1996, some Phillipine crewmembers said that the captain had not adhered to the shipping routes prescribed in the map, and had not reduced the speed despite the deteriorating view.

Fortunately, the
Egyptian navy will be rescued all crew members, and then the cargo will be bailed out with a value of 1.3 million British pounds in an elaborate rescue operation. On the Egyptian side, it was feared that on the one hand the cargo would have resulted in an algae carpet that would have removed the reefs from the reefs, and on the other hand the 700t fuel on board would have caused further pollution.

Since the wreck is quite intact, you can follow the hull up to the seabed at approx. 19m and find the cause for the downfall at the front of the bow: A meterlange well at the front at the nose of the nose which is actually more an incision One can then look at the usual damage with shattered steel plates along a length along the ship's hull. A bit deeper - in approx. 19-23m depth - is then also the ship's keel.
If you look at the sea floor at the ship's hull, you'll find something that does not seem to belong to the Million Hope. This is also true, because these remains belong to another ship. The Million Hope is muted to the M / V Hey Daroma and covers it almost completely! To these wreckage but see the report to the M / V Hey Daroma!
