St Jacques is 174 feet long and was captured on July 11, 2001 by the coastguard when she transported cocaine from Haiti to Miami as a Honduran ship. She was built in 1955 in the harbour of Hamburg, Germany as a cargo transport vessel with the name M/S Klaus Block. Other names she was known by during her lifetime were the Suderelv (1964), Tillia Doris (1969), Doloris (1987), Deborah Jean (1993) and finally the St Jacques. The St Jacques lies almost parallel and less than seventy five feet from the Shasha Boekanier. The front of the wheelhouse has been painted with different types of sea life paintings by a local artist named Doug Bolly.
