Mariam Express

Persian Gulf,Asia

Mariam Express was laid down as a Ro-Ro ferry at La Palice in France, and was launched in 1978. Her history is rather uneventful until she ended up as a ferry in the route between The Arab States and Iraq in the early 2000s. Under a journey from Dubai 3. May 2006 she was as usual overloaded with both vehicles and cargo before she left, and once underway she sailed into harsh weather conditions and rough seas. Not surprisingly, she soon sank. The wreck rest today on her port side on a depth of 15 to 20 meter approx twelve nautical miles outside Port Rashid in Dubai.
