More than three hundred years ago, the Spanish galleon Maravilla sank off the coast of the Bahamas. Almost since she went down, treasure hunters have searched for the ill-fated vessel, their appetites whetted by copies of her manifesto that spoke of a priceless cargo.
QUEST FOR THE MARAVILLA is a detailed account of the 12-year odyssey of world-renowned treasure hunter Robert Marx, who finally found the remains of the vessel. Guided by a nearly 300 page account written by a survivor of the wreck, Marx battled the sea, weather, nervous investors, bureaucrats and even modern-day pirates in his long search. But when the Maravilla began to give up her treasures, it was clear that it was all worthwhile millions of dollars worth of gold and silver, coins and fabulous antiquities have been recovered so far. And Marx thinks that the greatest treasure has yet to surface a solid gold statue of the Madonna! With extensive footage and interviews with Marx, his team and renowned historians, this is a comprehensive chronicle of an extraordinary search for sunken treasure.
