Wreck of an unidentified sailing ship from the 18th century

A group of Finnish technical divers, Badewanne, have been investigating the wreck of an unidentified sailing ship for several years. Thanks to photographic and film documentation, it was possible to create a model of the vessel.

Over the past three seasons, divers from the Badewanne Group have conducted a number of dives on the wreck of an unidentified sailing vessel. During this time they have been able to produce detailed documentation of the investigated vessel, but many mysteries still remain unsolved.

The vessel rests on the bottom of the Baltic Sea at a depth of 60 metres, southwest of Helsinki. The members of Badewanne first dived on it in 2003. Despite the passage of years and many subsequent dives, they still have not managed to find out discover its namethe origin and cause of the sinking.

In recent days the Badewanne group has published a photogrammetric 3D model of the wreck. The whole was drawn up on the basis of the latest video footage they recorded during their recent dives. From the attached photos, it is clear that we are dealing with a magnificent wreck that is very well preserved.

This last fact should not come as a surprise to anyone. It is well known that the depths of the Baltic Sea are extremely kind to wrecks of wooden ships. When found, ships and vessels from several centuries ago seem as if they sank only yesterday.

As for the unidentified sailing shipwreck presented, we can only wait. The group is not giving up and intends to continue working to establish the origin of this mysterious vessel. Let us hope that we will soon learn more about this interesting find.
