Lofthus Skip to main content

Before wrecking off Manalapan in 1898, Lofthus traveled the world as a merchant ship with gun ports painted on her sides to discourage pirate attacks. Today, the wreck of Lofthus is located in 15-20 feet of water, less than a mile north of Boynton Inlet and 175 yards off-shore of Manalapan.
