The value placed on the treasure lost from the 1715 fleet has been estimated at over $500,000,000
As you probably know, the City of Sebastian is located in Indian River County approximately midway through the east coast of the Florida Peninsula between Melbourne and Vero Beach in an area known as the Treasure Coast. But did you know that in 1715, several Spanish ships loaded with treasure (known as the 1715 Treasure Fleet) encountered a storm off the shores of the Treasure Coast and were lost? It is estimated that only a portion of the sunken treasure has been found. We come here often to fix air conditioners and to hunt for treasure!
