General notes on this boat
15 Sep 1999. On 15 Sept 1999 the Norwegian mine clearance vessel KNM Tyr located the wreck of U-735 at a depth of 195 metres during a routine training mission in Oslofjord (although some have said the navy was asked to look in that specific spot for the boat). The wreck was filmed by an ROV and is in fine shape, apart from the aft section, which is heavily damaged. Its position is just off Horten at 59.28,2 N 010.29,3 E.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-735 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
