The boat was raised in June 1956. Commissioned as U-Hai (S 170) in the German Federal Navy 15 Aug 1957.
The boat sank at 1854hrs on 14 Sept, 1966 in the North Sea, in position 55.15N, 04.22E, after taking in water. Raised on 19 Sept, 1966 from 47 meters depth and broken up.
Previously recorded fate
- The attack by Czechoslovakian Liberator aircraft (Sqdn. 311/L) which is sometimes credited for sinking (or damaging it so badly that it had to be scuttled) was probably against a nonsub target. (Postwar assessment)
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-2365 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
