This wooden wreck has not been identified with certainty, but it was tentatively associated with a stone-fishing vessel, which sunk with a crew of 7 in November 1950.
The wreck is heavily overgrown with sea anemones, so it is difficult to recognise any details, as demonstrated by the photos taken by Erhard Schulz (shown below). Nonetheless, a windlass for the anchor cable, an angular transom stern, and a well-preserved rudder were observed. The fact that there is no indication for a propeller, and thus no engine, calls the hypothesis into question that this could be a vessel of the mid 20th century. Amongst wreck-divers it has simply become known as Zweimaster (two-masted vessel).

Following the hint of the historian who traced the fate of the abovementioned stone-fishing vessel, the Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH: Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie) intensively searched this area and discovered the wreck in 2006.
