Sitting in her new home –
the Jewel of Muscat is now the focus in a Museum in Singapore.
Its a long way from the beach at Qantab where she was built and launched in Muscat two years ago. The boat is a gift from Oman’s government to Singapore as a key element in the museum about the Belitung shipwreck. The wreck may be an Arabian dhow which sank coming from China with a full cargo in 830 AD.
