Hamada at The Red Sea Wreck Project

The Hamada was a small cargo ship of 654 GRT launched on 15th March 1965.

There are different versions of the Hamada’s loss. One report indicates that she caught fire and sank in deep water. The P & O file states that the ship struck an “submerged object” in heavy weather at position 24.42N/35.25E off of Ras Banas while en route on 28 June 1993 from Jeddah to Suez and subsequently foundered.

What is known for sure is that the ship is now located in 14-meters of water at Abu Gosoon reef.
