U-Boat Worx has long made some of the best compact submersibles in the world. And while any of their models can make for some exciting underwater exploration, those who want to wander into the most formidable depths should be looking at the company’s latest ride: the U-Boat Worx C-Researcher 3.
Aimed at the scientific community, it’s a fully-transparent, three-person submersible that can sink to depths of 5,580 feet. Whether you want to admire alien-looking marine life, search for the remnants of Atlantis, or conduct actual scientific research, this is the thing you’ll want to do it with.
Just like the Dutch company’s other underwater crafts, the U-Boat Worx C-Researcher 3 comes with a transparent cabin that allows occupants to enjoy an unobstructed view of underwater sights. Up to three people can be accommodated inside the spherical pressure hull, allowing a pilot and two passengers to partake in the experience. When equipped with surface ballast tanks, the watercraft can maneuver across the top of the water all on its own, allowing it to dive without the aid of cranes or any other additional equipment. It’s also small enough to be housed inside a superyacht’s garage, so you can push it right out into the water.
Since it’s aimed for research use, the ride can be reinforced with a variety of optional equipment to aid in specific tasks. These include manipulator arms, imaging sonar, video cameras, and an assortment of other instruments that can help turn it into a deep sea-diving research lab.
Pricing for the U-Boat Worx C-Researcher 3 is available on request.
