      The SS America was designed by naval architect William Francis Gibbs and built in 1940 for the United States Line then renamed USS West Point during WWII. SS America was sold for scrap in the late 1980s but when the scrappers defaulted on payment she was then slated to become a five-star hotel ship off Phuket, Thailand and renamed American Star. However stormy weather while she was under tow to the site in 1994 broke the tow lines and the ship ran aground off Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. #abandoned #ship #boat #canaryislands #scrapped #WWII #SSAmerica
