Susannah/Excalibur at The Red Sea Wreck Project

The Excalibur (also known as Susannah) was a twin masted motor and sail vessel approximately 22-meters in length and was white and light blue in color with dark blue trim. She is said to have sank in the harbour of Hurghada in late 1995 or early 1996 as the result of an electrical fire.

The wreck sits upright on a sandy bottom in 22-meters of water with a slight starboard list. The part of the boat’s bowsprit is still in place on the bow and many deck fittings and rails are still present. Penetration of the wreck can be made into the pilothouse and some of the accommodation areas.
