The wreck of the U-550 has been located off of Nantucket Island. Nice side scan sonar image in the article.

The boat is a Type IXC/40. It was on its first war patrol when lost in April, 1944.
Since the discovery team sent divers down, the wreck is probably at roughly 200 feet or less on the bottom.
