  • Description:

    The luxury yacht Gunilda has been called "The most beautiful shipwreck in the world" by the 1980 Cousteau Expedition. Gunilda sits upright, intact with everything aboard. A gold foil covered bowsprit glitters under dive lights. The binnacle houses the ships compass and the entire superstructure is intact. Two divers have lost their lives on this wreck. Deep, Dark and Technical dive but for those lucky enough to be trained, this wreck will linger in your memory for the rest of your life.
