The Greek Ship is an old decayed ship landed at southwest coast of Kish Island, On July 26, 1966, Kish Island residents saw a huge ship beached on the western coral coast of the island. The real reason of why the ship was trapped is not clear.

Most people believe that the reason is the fact that there are few lighthouses in the area or maybe an error in the calculations of the captain. Several experts researched on how to remove the ship. It was concluded concluded that it was not practical to move the ship. The decision was made to keep it in place.
Over time, corrosion and oxidation caused the decay of the metal trunk of the ship. People were able to gain access to the ship for a short time. This caused the rear part to collapse.The area attracts many tourists who come to view the sunset.The ship was built in 1943 by William Hamilton Company in Port Glasgow, Scotland. Ship Weight was 7601 Tons and its length was 136 Meters. When stranded, she flew the Greek Flag.
