Got any questions for the Jewel of Muscat crew?

The Jewel of Muscat is heading for Georgetown at the end of the month, and we’re getting a chance to go onboard to see this fabulous replica of an Arab trading vessel! Do you have any questions you would like to ask about the Jewel of Muscat and her crew?


The Jewel of Muscat is a replica of a 9th century Arab trading vessel based on a shipwreck found in Indonesian waters in 1988. It was built in the traditional hand-sewn method as a gift from the Oman Sultanate to the people of Singapore in commemoration of the trade routes between the two countries. The Jewel set sail from Muscat in February this year, calling at ports in India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia before arriving at its final destination in Singapore sometime in July.

The Jewel is due in Georgetown at the end of the month, and we’re getting onboard the Jewel to take some pictures and speak with the crew and her creators. If you have any questions you’d like us to ask about the Jewel or her crew, leave a comment or send me an email!
