Greek Ship Khoula F, Kish Island
(3.4/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
A deserted shipwreck abandoned on the shores of Kish Island, Greek Ship Khoula F floats silently on the horizon like some forgotten ghost vessel. The ship successfully operated along the main trade routes for some 20 years before running aground in shallow waters off the island's coast in 1966. From the shore, look out to the haunting frame, the rusting silhouette glinting amber in the sun as the sea slowly reclaims what's left of this once powerful steamship. Plan to see Greek Ship Khoula F and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kish Island tour planner.

  • Ship there will probably be about 10 years no longer because it is broken down by the sea. There is still this ship back parking lot created and what benches. In addition, a old plane by Kish Air nearby.

  • The ship was built by William Hamilton and Company in Port Glasgow, Scotland, and launched on 9 March 1943 as Empire Trumpet. The 7,059 GRT cargo ship was completed in April 1943 and under the ownership of the Ministry of War Transport was operated by the Larrinaga Steamship Company and T & J. Harrison Co., both of Liverpool. The ship was sold to T & J. Harrison in 1946 and renamed Naturalist. She was sold in 1959 to the Iranian Lloyd Company and renamed Persian Cyrus, and sold again in 1965 to Iranian Shipping Lines SA and renamed Hamadan. Finally in 1966, she was sold to P.J. Frangoulis and A.I. Cliafas, Greece and renamed Koula F
