The Japanese bulk carrier ship "Ryusei Maru" was renamed the "Million Hope" when it was purchased in 1996 by a shipping company based in Cyprus. The ship sank after striking the reef near Nabq in poor visibility (just 6 weeks after the purchase). The ship was loaded with a shipment of Potash and Phosphate Rock.

All 25 members of the mostly Filipino crew were rescued and the cargo was successfully salvaged.
