I guess it's the Japanese heavy cruiser "Suzuya" which sank during the Battle of Samar in 1944. It's in 27600 ft under surface (8410m) !!!
Google earth !!!

According to the Guiness World Records:

"On 28 November 1996 Blue Water Recoveries Ltd (UK) discovered the wreck of the SS Rio Grande, using side-scanning sonar, at the bottom of the South Atlantic Ocean. On 30 November 1996 the find was confirmed by the company using a remotely-operated vehicle. The wreck, a World War II German blocade runner, lies at a depth of 5,762 m (18,904 ft)."
