The well preserved fishing boat was found in 1984 during the excavations of the beach. It was totally carbonized form the Vesuvius eruption of the year 79 AD. Suddenly after the discovery was patiently restaured and consolidated by italian specialists in the presevatin of the ancient wood. This extraordaniry find is now displayed in a museum next to the archaeological site. Unfortunately, the museum is only occasionally open becaus of the luck of fundings.
