The first U-boat launched by AG Weser in Bremen was the U-25 on 14 Feb 1936, but the last U-boat launched was the U-3044 on 1 Mar 1945. This refers to U-boats that were actually commissioned into the Kriegsmarine.

The last actual launch was U-3051 on 20 Apr 1945. That boat was not commissioned however.

XIBU-112 - U-1154 boats977- 9801939These 4 large U-cruisers were probably not laid down but one of them, U-112, possibly went a bit further than the rest. Information on those is very limited. Cancelled in May 1940.

Some claim the U-112 was not only completed but sailed on a mysterious journey against the US in 1945 where she was sunk with all hands. A project known as CA-35 was founded to proof a group of divers had found the wreck but no evidence has been found to confirm the story and no evidence has either been found she was ever completed.

XXIU-3064 - U-310037 boats1223- 12591943Keel not laid, prefabricated sections partially completed. 


Of those 122 contracts not finished by AG Weser in Bremen, 27 had been laid down and 10 of those had been launched before the war ended.
