Mysterious Ghost Ship Myanmar Reappears After 9 Years Lost At Sea
Mysterious ‘ghost ship’ reappears after 9yrs lost at sea The sudden appearance of a massive ‘ghost’ ship off the coast of southern Myanmar has shocked local fishermen who were stunned to find the freighter carried no cargo nor traces of crew.
The fishermen boarded and inspected the ship after reporting it to local authorities. Teams from the navy, coast guard and police all subsequently searched the abandoned freighter which reportedly measures an impressive 177.35 meters in length, 27.91 meters in width and weighs 26,510 tons.
The ship is reported to have sailed under the flag of Indonesia and was last spotted off Taiwan in 2009. When the Burmese Navy inspected the ship on August 30, it had split in half having been beached on a sand bar for several day.
“In my opinion, the ship was recently abandoned. There must be a reason (why it was abandoned),” Aung Kyaw said.
