Million Hope

The Million Hope was a phosphate carrier that sank in 1996 when it stuck on the Sinai shore just north of the famous reef system of Gordon, Thomas, Woodhouse & Jackson, in the Straits of Tiran. Shortly after sailing from Aqaba in Jordan, the Million Hope hit the fringing reef plate in the narrow part of the Enterprise Passage, by Nabq, and promptly sank in the shallows, spilling its phosphates. The cause of the accident was an uncontrollable fire that quickly raced through the ship causing it to lose control. The carrier finally came to rest less than 5ms from the shoreline reef and at just 24m deep, leaving a large amount of the ship’s superstructure still visible above the waves.
