Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx has launched HP Sport Sub 2, its new ultra-compact 2-person model. The craft is a high-performance submersible ready to fit onboard any superyacht. Its designs also allows for it to be towed behind a car.
Company founder and chairman Bert Houtman explains this submersible design is “suitable for all superyachts from 30 meters and up”. The craft is a high performance, a 100-meter (330-feet) depth-rating and weighs only 2,200 kg. In addition, HP Sport Sub 2 features an ultra-low height of 136 cm (53 inches).
“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, for example the ability to easily board the craft at the surface,” he notes.
Although this model was principally designed to maximize the excitement of diving, U-Boat Worx has created a full-fledged submersible.
Production models are scheduled for delivery for the autumn of 2015.
