The Mary Celeste was an American merchant brigantine that was found adrift in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean without a crew on Dec. 5, 1872.
It is a puzzling story with many ideas to what had happened. The interesting point is the lifeboats were missing. The ship was in perfect condition and there was a good storage of provisions.
The crew had abandoned ship and no one was on board. They were never seen again. Theories about what happened to the crew included pirate attacks, mutiny or some unknown phenomenon.
There has never been a suitable resolution as to what happened.
