Located by divers in late 1975, this formerly unidentified Hope Island Wreck is the 139 (41.8 metre) schooner, Marquette.

Pilfered of many artifacts (only one deadeye remains, on the bowsprit), this site offers excellent views and photography opportunities of two wooden-stocked bow anchors, with chains still connecting them to the windlass. Also present are a samson post, double framing, centreboard box, centreboard winch, main mast step, a capstan lying on its side in the sand inside the hull, plank sheers, and a portion of the rudder.
