“Dutch U-Boat Worx has revealed its new flagship, designed to offer “the most high-end subsea experience” –Paul Ebeling
U-Boat Worx, a leader in commercial and private multi-passenger submarine operations, has launched its Nexus series of submersibles, depth-rated to 200m and available in 2 different hull sizes for 7 and 8 people, or 9 if 2 are children.
Nexus offers an immersive connection due to its fully transparent elliptical pressure hull, an increased internal volume per occupant and U-Boat Worx’ signature revolving seating arrangement.
The company describes the Nexus as “the fastest multi-passenger submarine on the market”, with its industry-leading battery capacity powering eight thrusters. The model has also been designed for towing, often used for long-distance mobilization.
Another design achievement is the Nexus’ ability to move in any direction, as proven in the Cruise Sub series. In addition to forward, reverse, up and down, the submersible can also move laterally, which increases the submersible’s object approach and dive efficiency, as well as passenger views and pilot freedom.
To improve access, the Nexus is designed to be stable yet maneuverable on the surface. A 90cm freeboard, handrails, grips and steps help to board, while the Nexus and Cruise Subs provide enough deck space to hold all occupants. The Nexus is also equipped with the industry’s largest-diameter hatch, which further assists boarding, while an elevator is an option.
Have a super Summer, the chaos is over, Keep the Faith!
