The Giannis D was built 1969 in Japan. The dimensions of this "General Cargo Vessel" were about 100m length and 16m width. In April 1983 on its way Croatia to Saudi Arabia, loaded with sawn softwood, it hit the northwest corner of Shaab Abu Nuhas Reef and sunk.
It was carrying wood, some remains but almost all of the stock was stolen by locals to build their house!
