This 58M / 192FT, four-masted, wooden-hulled American schooner was built in 1918. During World War II, she was pressed into service and used as a cargo vessel. In July 1943, she was bound for Venezuela carrying a general cargo of building materials, medicinal drugs and 700 cases of Scotch whisky. Today, her hull lies broken on a coral and sand bottom in 9M/30FT of water, exposing petrified sacks of cement, building supplies, glassware and a vast assortment of small items. The Constellation was the inspiration for Jaws author, Peter Benchley’s follow-up novel, the Deep.
