The “Sea of Galilee Boat”, known also by the nickname “The Jesus boat”, was discovered by chance in 1986 on the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee, next to kibbutz Ginnosar.

C14 tests, as well as artifacts date the vessel to the first century, and being so, one cannot rule out the possiblity Jesus or one of his disipiles used this boat. The boat is in permanent display in kibbutz Ginnosar.
