Investigations into the cause of a fire on board the tourist boat ’The Spirit of 1770’ have entered a new stage after its sunken wreckage was found over the weekend.

Wreckage of the boat was found almost 25 kilometres off the coast of The Town of 1770, in southern Queensland, on Saturday.

The private operators of the vessel enlisted the help of two local divers who filmed the wreckage at 38 metres below the surface.

The boat sank on May 11 after a fire broke out in its engine room.
