Giannis D

Egypt,Red Sea

Giannis D is one of many shipwrecks that rest around the reefs at Shaab Abu Nuhas in Egypt. The reefs here has claimed quite many ships through history, and one of the ships that ended her days on "The seven deaths" is the Greek vessel Giannis D. She was on a journey from Rijeka to Hodeida when she hit ground after an navigational error. She was stuck for several weeks before she broke in two parts and sank. The remains of her rest today on a depth of approx 10 to 28 meter northwest of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas.
