Key features of yachting

YACHTING

Compact and luxurious private submarines especially designed to fit aboard superyachts, the Super Yacht Sub series opens the world beneath the waves to yacht owners. The Super Yacht Sub 3 offers best-in-class performance and has set the standard with successful delivery to several iconic superyachts.

Key yachting features

Yacht Integration

Diving from your yacht is made effortless and safe. The relatively small size, low weight and flexible (single or dual) lifting point design of the Super Yacht Subs make it possible to integrate a private submarine on more yachts than ever before.

Passenger steering

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. The unique control device – the MANTA Controller – can simply be handed over by the pilot to his guests for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to personally steer a submarine.

Clearest view

To experience the underwater world in the optimal way, one of U-Boat Worx’ design priorities has always been to offer the clearest possible view. To ensure this, our remarkably clear fully acrylic pressure hull has been positioned at the front of the submersible, providing an unobstructed view in every direction, unimpeded by ballast tanks, batteries and other components.

Total Safety

At U-Boat Worx every submarine is built with safety as the primary consideration, and our reputation for reliability has been established by always adhering to our meticulous “safety first” regime. Designed, built and rigorously tested to the highest standards, the submersibles are all certified by leading classification organisation, DNV GL. To assure complete safety, in-house experts at U-Boat Worx have developed unique features while our safety testing programmes ensure that each and every component is faultlessly reliable. Each submarine’s hull is individually pressurised to a test depth that greatly exceeds the pressure experienced at its certified maximum operating depth.

UNPARALLELED COMFORT

Each U-Boat Worx submarine is designed to provide unmatched comfort, space and style. All of our submarines have maximum legroom and headroom while keeping overall weight and size to a minimum. This combination delivers the ultimate diving experience. Efficient air-conditioning and surround sound music form part of the fine detailing, together with the optimum ergo dynamics to facilitate ease of boarding and disembarking. In keeping with the ultra-high standards found in superyachts, our submersibles boast the most luxurious of fit-outs crafted by legendary Dutch workmanship.
