The British Ports Association (BPA) has announced that the discovery of the lost legendary city of Atlantis off the coast of Cornwall will lead to the construction of a revolutionary new floating port.
In a statement, the BPA said the discovery was made approximately 100 miles of the Isles of Scilly and that a new US$65 million port facility is planned to house almost 200 specialist marine archaeologists and vessels which will head to the region in the coming months.
It also says that initial assessments suggest that Atlantis had a thriving port. Commenting on the discovery, Richard Ballantyne, Chief Executive of the BPA, said: “This is potentially unbelievable news!”

“If this were true it would be amazing and Atlantis would be considered one of the biggest ports in the world.
“Furthermore, technically as Atlantis is in British waters it is eligible for membership of the British Ports Association so we hope they will join up!”
The discovery was made by the crew of the fishing vessel MS Plato over the weekend. The fisherman found a suspected 11,000 year old golden statue which resembles the head of the famous Wolf Boy of Atlantis in their nets.
The statue is said to have been mounted above the entrance to the biggest department store in the Atlantis, which sold thousands of goods to ancient Greeks.
Port Technology would like to wish all its readers a very happy April Fool’s Day 2019!
