View of a small model of the ship.


The vessel is approximately 41 feet long and 13 feet wide.  It had a load capacity of about 15 tons.  The ship sailed under a square rig and its maststep (the wooden horizontal beam that holds the mast in place) was found intact!  The ship was probably manned by a crew of 4-6 mariners.

In 1985 a shipwreck dating to the fifth century BC was discovered off the coast of Kibbutz Ma'agan Mikhael (Michael).
