This is the wreck believed to be the 1882 Brazilian navy orvette Almirante Barroso. The ship sunk in the Strait of Gubal in the Gulf of Suez. Provided the identification is correct, the ship and her crew was making a circumnavigation attempt while training future navy officers.
Almirante Barroso was a fully rigged tall ship, but was built at a time where the world was transitioning to steam power. The steam engine remains in excellent shape and is visible in the model. Her steel hull remains intact, but her wood deck has rotted away.
This scan data was collected on two dives from M.V. Noran of the Red Sea Explorers, during the Wreck Exploration Project in February 2020. Between the wreck’s depth at 75m/250ft, long bottom times, and significant current, the project was challenging but successful.
