Built by Ottensener Eisenwerke, Hamburg as Mobilmachungs-Fischdamfer nr. 6 in 1941 and converted to a submarine hunter. Commanded by Korvettenkapitan Wolfgang Kaden who perished in the sinking.

The shipwreck is fairly intact and rests uprigt at the bottom at 72 meters. The forward section was severed – but now rests only 20-30 meters from the main section. Pipe, mast and anti-aircraft-guns is still upright. A lot of depth-charges is inside and around the wreck, and we have also located a case of hand-grenades.
