Sakkarah

El Salvador,South America

Douglas was a combined sail and cargo steamer built by Gray, Denton & Company in Sunderland, and was launched in 1872 for George Pyman & Company. She was sold in 1975 to DDG Kosmos Line in German, and was renamed Sakkarah. A governmental contract with the authorities in El Salvador made her start sailing in the trade route between Germany - Chile and El Salvador. Under a journey from Acajutla to Hamburg loaded with grain and coffee, she hit ground and sank outside Los Cóbanos 9. February 1890. The remains of her rest today on a depth of 4 to 13 meter at Punta Remedios.
