The steamer Ulysses was launched in November 1860 after being built by R. & W. Hawthorn Leslie Company in Hebburn On Tyne in England. She was put in service for Ocean Steamship Company in London and operated the route between England and China. Under a journey from London to Penang in Malaysia she hit ground and was firmly stuck at Gobal Sheghir 16. August 1887. In the following days most of the cargo and inventory was salvaged before she went down in the deep. The wreck rest today with the bow as the shallowest point on a depth of 6 to 30 meter north of Gobal Sheghir.
