Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx launches the NEXUS series that includes two models featuring an ultra-large elliptical acrylic pressure hull. The flagship submersible seats up to eight passengers and one pilot and provides 25% more interior space than competing models. The NEXUS subs are depth-rated to 200 meters (650 feet).
The subs are fitted with the latest lithium-ion battery technology that allows them to operate for up to 18 hours and dive up to ten times a day. 80 guests can enjoy an unforgettable sub-sea adventure daily.
The NEXUS uses the unique revolving seating arrangement that was featured in the Cruise Subs. It allows passengers to enjoy the best view, regardless of the direction the submarine is traveling. The new subs can maneuver in any direction without compromise. Ten silent thrusters provide the power required for top performance and unmatched speed.
The new series includes an XXL entrance hatch – the largest ever incorporated on a submersible of this size. For passengers of all ages, the entire boarding process has been streamlined. A unique feature of U-Boat Worx’ flagship submersibles is the optional passenger elevator, also integrated on the company’s C-Researcher models.
Thanks to top-mounted diving tanks, the view abeam on both sides is unrestricted by floaters. The NEXUS is optimized for ship-based launch and recovery, and can also be deployed from land and transported to dive sites. In addition to the 9-person NEXUS, a marginally smaller and lighter 7-person version is available.
