U-Boat Worx has unveiled a new addition to its submarine range with its latest model in the lightweight luxury submersible market. Following the development of the C-Researcher Series and Super Yacht Sub series, the submarine manufacturer is now offering a first glimpse of the new “NEMO.” This 2-seater lightweight submersible is currently in the final phase of production.
The ultra-modern design, sharp lines, hydrodynamic form and optimal power to weight ratio, combine to create an instant classic. The NEMO’s fine detailing —including transparent nosecones, octagonal thruster ducts, car-like stern, and a fully acrylic pressurized hull— create a submarine with personality and performance. With a total weight of only 5, 511 pounds (2,500 kilograms), the NEMO is an extremely lightweight manned submersible. It stands a little more that 5ft (155 centimeters) high. With these key features, the NEMO is suited for a wide audience. Given its low weight and size, the NEMO can be towed behind a car on a trailer for shoreside launching.
The interior of the NEMO is contemporary with an emphasis on comfort and functionality, creating a stylish and relaxing environment for both the Pilot and those who prefer to be driven. The experienced U-Boat Worx pilots were the center in the NEMO’s design. Everything was done to put the pilot central. The result, a submarine that is ready to be owner driven.
U-Boat Worx provides training courses with the purchase of a NEMO submersible. The training consists of 12 days full-time training at its facility, Sub Center Curaçao (SCC). Here the owner can learn everything he or she needs to know to become a certified submersible operator. After they have completed the requisite training, they will be handed the keys to their own fully DNV-GL certified NEMO submersible.
Most of U-Boat Worx submarines are built-to-order. The NEMO will become available once market demand has been met. The price of the NEMO sub is approximately $1,055,000. (€975,000) (ex. VAT).
