Cabo de Santa Maria Wrecks, Cape Verde

From series “The Surviving Remains of Shipwrecks You Can Observe Yourself”
The freight ship Cabo de Santa Maria has an outstanding history. In 1968 it was transported very precious cargo – presents from Francisco Paulino Hermenegildo Teódulo Franco for Spanish alliance partners that support the country at the time of the economic crisis. There were expensive cars, products, medicine, clothes and other precious things.

Cabo de Santa Maria Wrecks, Cape Verde When the ship was coming along the Cabo Verde islands the vessel has sat around. Within several days the precious items were transported from the ship. The freight ship Cabo de Santa Maria was left neglected. Now you can see it on the coast of Boavista island, not far from the island capital of Sal Rei. Today this ghost ship is a kind of tourist sightseeing.

When the vessel sat aground, local tugboats tried to loosen it but no one try was successful. Nowadays this old ghost ship is a symbol of the tiny island state. The beach near the wrecked ship is covered with small snow-white sand. At the background of this sand and azure water, this solitary ship looks amazing. This scenery attracts artists and photographs from the whole world. Next - BOS 400 Wrecks
