U-Boat Worx is back again with a new and cool lightweight submersible. We have featured some subs from their submarine range in the past like the HiPer Sub 2 and C-Researcher 3. Now, the Netherlands-based submersible manufacturer has unveiled their latest lightweight submersible. Named “NEMO”, 2-seater sub is currently in its final phase of production.
The NEMO submersible is the lightest manned submersible ever built. Weighing only 2,500 kilograms and standing only 155 centimeters high, the submarine can fit on a broader variety of ships. The low weight and size allows it to be towed behind a car on a trailer. The NEMO measures 280cm in length and 231cm in width, thus it requires less storage space than two jet-skis. Gladly, the submarine comes with a state-of-the-art acrylic pressure hull that offers an unobstructed view into the ocean.
This luxury underwater craft is designed to be the ultimate submersible to drive. Thus, U-Boat Worx has crafted this submarine in such as way that the owner can pilot it himself effortlessly. Besides that, experienced submersible pilots at U-Boat Worx have been crucial throughout every design stage of NEMO. The two-seater NEMO can dive up to 100 meters and can run at speeds up to 3 knots underwater.
The NEMO submersible from U-Boat Worx is powered by two intelligent control systems. The MANTA Controller allows supervised passenger steering. Whereas, the MARLIN Controller is a wireless remote that can be used to navigate the submarine on the surface. With the purchase of a NEMO submersible, the Dutch company provides 12-day full-time training courses at their facility. Therefore, after becoming a certified submersible operator, the owner will be handed the keys to their submarine.
NEMO is the only series-produced submarine in the world and will be readily available after the first demand for production has been met. Once available, it will set you back €975,000($1.06 million) excluding VAT.
