HiPer Sub series

Are you ready for a fast, exhilarating underwater adventure? Buckle up and dive in one of U-Boat Worx’ revolutionary two- or four-person HiPer Subs.

Just like any other U-Boat Worx submarine, the HiPer Sub is equipped with a multitude of safety systems and fully certified by DNV GL. A trained pilot is always in control of the submarine, and supervising every action.

The HiPer Sub’s ability to perform “hydrobatics” – underwater acrobatic manoeuvres – makes it the ultimate underwater dive experience. You can roll, loop, make steep turns, vertical ascents and descents, all while enjoying the magnificent underwater world, at a depth of up to 100 meters.

Thanks to our Computational Flow Dynamics calculations, drag has been reduced by more than 70% compared with traditional submersibles. Each HiPer Sub is fitted with six powerful thrusters, which, combined with its hydrodynamic shape, make this submarine travel three times faster than any other private submarine.

Its compact size and low weight mean the HiPer Sub will fit on yachts where no other submarine can. It can even be towed behind a car! The HiPer Sub opens up a thrilling new world of submarine dive experiences to an ever increasing number of people.

Get ready and buckle up!

Anatomy

Horizontal Thrusters

Two strong 6.4 kW thrusters allow for an impressive underwater speed of up to 6 knots.

Vertical thrusters

Four powerful 5.5 kW thrusters allow the submarine to perform hydrobatics, such as making rolls, loops, steep turns, and almost vertical ascents and descents.

The best view

To experience the underwater world in the optimal way, one of U-Boat Worx’ design priorities has always been to ensure the clearest possible view. We use an extremely clear acrylic window that offers the most immersive experience. To inspect the seabed with the HiPer Sub, one simply navigates the submarine at an angle.

Lithium-ion batteries

The latest in Lithium-ion battery technology is used to give our submersibles the ultimate performance, lowest weight, smallest footprint, and best endurance. The Lithium-ion Battery System can be quickly recharged and is maintenance-free. The HiPer Sub has a 31.5 kWh battery capacity stored in a state-of-the-art pressure-tolerant battery system.

Hydrodynamic hull

The performance of the HiPer Sub hull has been optimised to deliver the fastest private submarine ever. The use of CFD calculations has made it possible to reduce drag more than 70%.

Surface stability

The HiPer Sub is highly stable yet deftly manoeuvrable on the surface – important characteristics for easy boarding of the sub. Nobody gets wet feet while embarking or disembarking the HiPer Sub! Ergonomic and strategically placed handrails, grips and steps help explorers of all ages to board safely and comfortably.

Footprint

The small height and footprint makes it possible to integrate the HiPer Sub on yachts with small storage spaces. Moreover, the submarine can be deployed from a trailer and easily towed behind a car.

Safety Buoy

The Safety Buoy is characteristic for U-Boat Worx submersibles. When released, it marks the position of the submarine on the surface. The Dyneema Rope attached measures 1.5 x the operating depth of the submersible, and is strong enough to lift the submersible to the surface.

Intuitive controls

Each U-Boat Worx submersible is delivered with a world-class pilot training course. The intuitive interface of our submersibles is easy for pilots to learn. Unique to the U-Boat Worx private submarines is passengers being able to navigate the submersible while under supervision of the pilot. With a simple joystick the submarine can be navigated easily in any direction.

Sports interior

With the HiPer Sub series, we have aspired to create the ultimate in sport-style interiors. When onboard a HiPer Sub, guests enjoy exhilarating views from a racing seat in a comfortable air-conditioned environment with variable airflow, adjustable from each seat. Music from a hi-fidelity Bluetooth sound-system enhances the dive experience.

UIS

The U-Boat Worx Information System (UIS) gives the pilot direct access to all relevant information on a clear touch-screen display. The PLC-based network of sensors ensures the right information is provided at the right time. The UIS makes diving effortless.

  • High Speed

    Six powerful thrusters work efficiently thanks to the hydrodynamic hull. Four vectored-vertical thrusters allow the submersible to adapt to any possible heel, pitch or altitude, which results in spectacular views for the occupants. The Lithium-ion batteries in the HiPer Sub are specially engineered for low weight and endurance, with high-capacity cells giving the thrusters the energy they need for performance.
