The U-Boat Worx submarine for super yachts
Stow away with ease
Dutch company U-Boat Worx has unveiled its new 'Super Yacht Sub 3' – capable of taking three people to a maximum depth of 300 metres, and specifically designed for super yacht owners. Unusually small and very light, it is only 171cm in height and 3,500 kg in weight, meaning that it can stow away on a huge vessel with ease. With its flexible lifting arrangement, it can be easily adapted to fit any crane configuration, too.
It has six powerful thrusters to handle strong currents, also featuring luxury leather seating and air-conditioning and a battery system to allow up to 12 hours of ocean fun, plus a transferable "Manta controller" that allows passengers to take turns in driving.
Should anything not go to plan, however, there are a number of safety features, of course, including a safety buoy, drop weight and 96 hours of life support...
