The Nanhai One, (South China Sea No. 1) is a Chinese merchant ship that sank during the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279 CE), possibly due to a storm.
It was found in the South Sea in 1987 by a British maritime exploration team while searching for the wreck of the 18th-century ship, Rhynsburg. Not only is it the largest ship of its kind ever discovered, but was also the first to be uncovered on the Maritime Silk Road.
