The wreck is a German Kondo I-class patrol boat (62m/203ft long, 16 m/52ft high and 7m/22ft wide) that was built to patrol the river banks between the East and West Germany and later was used by the Armed forces of Malta as a patrol boat and a minesweeper. After being decommissioned, it was turned into an artificial reef in 2007 and now lies on the bottom of Cirkewwa. Divers can go nearly everywhere inside the vessel. The wreck sits upright on its keel in about 35m/114ft of water, while the highest point is located at only 12m/39ft depth.
