Shipwrecks of the Northeast
Shipwrecks of the Northeast illustrates more than 5,400 known shipwrecks on the untamed Atlantic coast of New England (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island).
From Rhode Islands' Narragansett Bay to Maine's St. Croix River, each wreck site is symbolized to define the class, type and name of vessel accompanied by the date of sinking. Icons also indicate whether a ship was lost due to conflict or natural causes.
Locations of lifesaving stations and lighthouses, along with navigational beacons are also marked. Bathymetric and coastal features are clearly labeled. Captions and drawings highlight unique historical events such as the infamous sinking of the Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria off the coast of Nantucket in 1956. Wrecks featured on this map span from mid-1600s galleons to 20th-century naval ships, those lost in military conflict, foul weather, mutinies, unseen rocks, treacherous shoals, mechanical failures and a myriad of other events.
