In the middle of the Baltic Sea, 30 nautical miles East of the island of Gotska sandön, an exceptionally well preserved wooden ship wreck is standing on the bottom at a depth of 125 metres. The hull is intact and judging from the type of ship and its decorations a preliminary dating would place it in the first half of the 17th century.
The ship was discovered in 2003 by Deep Sea Productions and MMTAB/Marin Mätteknik during their search for the Swedish DC-3 airplane lost in 1952. During the recording of a TV series, ”The Wreck Divers”, in 2007, the ship was surveyed using a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). In 2008 an international research group was formed in order to further research and analyse the wreck. The first scientific expedition took place in November 2008. The expedition is part of the production The Ship that Changed the World.
