On 12 July 2006 a ship belonging to the Polish oil company Petrobaltic found a 265 m long wreck close to the port of ?eba (BBC report says 55 km north of W?adys?awowo) which they thought was most likely Graf Zeppelin. On 26 July 2006 the crew of the Polish Navy's survey ship ORP Arctowski commenced penetration of the wreckage to confirm its identity, and the following day the Polish Navy confirmed that the wreckage was indeed that of Graf Zeppelin. She rests at more than 264 feet (80 metres) below the surface.
