The Bacchis at The Red Sea Wreck Project

Today’s featured wreck is Bacchis, formerly the Consul Arlt.

Sea to Sky

In 1962 the ship was sold to Ferraro Brothers, Callao, Peru, and renamed Consul.
Sold again in 1965 to N. Georgacopoulos, Greece, and renamed Evangelos. Sold yet again in 1966 to Seamaster’s Sg. Co., Greece (or possibly Cyprus), and renamed Lion of Marathon that same year, renamed Lion of Mykonos in 1969, and then Bacchis in 1975.

There appears to be mixed information about this wreck. The only information found concerning the ship’s loss is that she was lost in 09 August 1977 off of Ashrafi Island. Another source states the ship was lost in 1983.

We are continuing our research and will keep you all updated as soon as we find something new to share.
