The Marie Celeste was a blockade runner that hit reefs off Bermudas south shore on September 6th, 1864 only eight months after being launched. She was well built and very fast, equipped with twin oscillating cylinder steam engines and feathering paddlewheels. Carrying 534 boxes labelled "General Merchandise" - actually ammunition and rifles - she sank in just 8 minutes after hitting a reef as she left the island. Part of her bow is visible, as are her two huge boilers and her paddlewheels.
