Renowned Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx has launched its new ultra-compact 2-person “HP Sport Sub 2”, a high-performance submersible ready to fit onboard any superyacht. It can even be towed behind a car.
According to Founder and Chairman Bert Houtman, this remarkable submersible design is “suitable for all superyachts from 30 meters and up”. The luxury submersible has a 100-meter (330-feet) depth-rating and weighs only 2,200 kg. Add to that its ultra-low height of 136 cm (53 inches) and superb performance, and in the HP Sport Sub 2 you have easily the best choice among personal sports submersibles.
“The design is attractive, but above all, safe and functional”, says Houtman.“We’ve adopted a very different look compared to traditional submersibles, but without compromising safety and ease of use - the ability to easily board the craft at the surface, for example.”
The result is a modern and streamlined submersible with fantastic performance. Whether at the surface or underwater, its speed and maneuverability are exceptional. Although this “subsea-Ferrari” was principally designed to maximize the excitement of diving, U-Boat Worx has created a full-fledged submersible.
U-Boat Worx’ HP Sport Sub 2 costs €1,000,000 and production models are scheduled for delivery for the autumn of 2015.
