2650 BC(Johann Wolkersdorfer JW-13)
- Type: Funerary ship
- Hull: Cedar and other woods
- Displacement: 94 tons
- Dimensions: 143 x 18.7 x 4.9 ft.
- Notes: The oldest, largest, and best-preserved vessel from antiquity. Found accidentally during an excavation by the Great Pyramid at Giza in 1954. The ship had been stored dismantled and was perfectly preserved in its airtight chamber. Almost certainly built for Cheops, the second Pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of the Egyptian Old Kingdom. Over 1200 pieces were recovered, conserved, and reassembled over a 13 year period. In 1982 the boat was put on display in a specially built museum next to the pyramid.
