Wreck of the wooden sailing boat, probably from XVI/XVII century, located 200 meters from the beach on the Hel Peninsula, in line with Góra Szwedów lighthouse, 5 meters deep.

The relic consists of the wooden construction remains - a keel, multipronged keelson with side reinforcements and step, floor, outside deck and inside paneling. The vessel's construction can be described as mixed, pinewood-oak. Transverse racking elements, same as the floor, are made from oak and joined with planks with pinewood pins. There are also ballast stones and scarce number of ceramics spread around. The length of the craft is estimated on 23 meters and the width on 11 meters (including the ballast space). The wood used for the construction originates from Sweden.
