45m M/Y HARLE Discovers Rare Coral

45m M/Y HARLE Discovers Rare Coral

When our superyachts aren’t taking charterers on adventures, they head off on their own unique expeditions. A recent voyage aboard motor yacht HARLE was significant for both scientific and historic reasons. Read on to learn what discoveries were made.


About the expedition

A team of marine scientists deployed a series of submersible dives in the Gulf of Naples and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Two major discoveries came from the dives; one natural and scientific, the other with great historic significance.

Rare corals rediscovered

A highly rare red coral known as Coralium ruburn was found hundreds of metres below land on an underwater cliff. It was an untouched, pristine population. This coral has previously been used in jewellery and was commonly pillaged throughout history. Another rare black coral was also found off the coast of Sicily during the trip.

A historic shipwreck

In an exciting development for history buffs; a Roman shipwreck was discovered off the coast of Capri. This was the largest of multiple historic discoveries, with other details yet to be shared with the public.
