Is There A Private Submarine In Your Garage?

Two U-Boat Worx crew members prepare the C-Explorer 2 for a dive.

 

After the first success stories of submersibles operated from luxury Cruise Ships like The Taipan from Star Cruises and the Crystal Esprit, the Netherlands-based submersible manufacturer is seeing increased demand from the industry.

“Our operations on cruise ships inspired the development of the Cruise Sub series, ” says Bert Houtman, Founder and Chairman at U-Boat Worx. “Whether the operator focusses on exclusive deep sea exploration in remote destinations or on doing numerous subsea excursions on coral reefs, the Cruise Subs are optimized for maximizing the guest experience.”

The new Cruise Sub series are used on exclusive private super yachts and by research institutes. The interior can revolve inside the sphere, ensuring passengers always have the best view while diving – regardless of the direction the submersible is travelling.

The submersibles are designed to international standards and can be operated non-stop for up to 12 hours. They are battery-powered and therefore have no impact on the marine environment.
