Giannis D as The “Shoyo Maru”

The Giannis D was a cargo ship of 2,992 GRT originally built as the Shoyo Maru at Kuryshima Dock Company of Imabari, Japan and completed in September of 1969.

A favorite of many Red Sea Wreck Divers, the Giannis D struck the reef at Abu Nuhas on 19th April 1983. After sitting on top of the reef for several weeks she finally slipped into the water and now rests between 10m and 28m.
