Hag Ahmed Youssef Moustafa (c. 1913 – 1999) was an Egyptian master restorer.


For twenty-eight years, Youssef worked to restore a solar boat found in Khufu's funerary complex at Giza. Youssef worked by following lines of mortice and tenon joints and by stitching parts together with vegetable ropes to keep the design as authentic as possible.[2]
