Dedicated to creating the safest, most reliable, highest quality and technologically advanced and versatile submersibles using 21st century innovations and materials, the Dutch submarine manufacturer U-Boat Worx has now unveiled its vessel, the C-Explorer 5. Described by its manufacturer as ‘the world’s first subsea limousine’, this fully air-conditioned submersible featuring a full 360-degree acrylic pressure hull has been exclusively designed for superyacht owners to explore the depth of the oceans and for luxury resorts that want to offer their discerning clientele a semi-private undersea experience. Notably, U-Boat Worx has been developing this $2.4 million submersible for over the past two years.
Actually forging a new window of ocean exploring opportunity; this submersible with its practical configuration and full 360-degree acrylic pressure hull cruises at 3 knots below the surface offering unparalleled performance.
Developed to accommodate 4 passengers along with a pilot, it can descend to a maximum ocean depth of 300 meters, and features touch screen interface and alarm handling system, single sideband underwater communication set and echosounder.
Further, its high-capacity lithium-ion batteries enable it to operate for 8 hours at a time, with an additional option of upgrading it to 16, along with extra purchasable features including an external manipulator arm, high-tech imaging sonar, special LED lights, and full HD video camera, and a tethered remote-operated vehicle.
The other most advanced U-Boat Worx's submersibles that we have seen in the past includes C-Explorer submersible, and the C-Quester submersibles, besides the world's most technologically advanced submersibles.
