U-Boat Worx showcased designs for the 1,250-ton, 37.5-meter underwater superyacht the Nautilus. Once it is built, the vessel will be functioning as a yacht or a submersible.
The diesel-electric Nautilus has a depth rating of 200 meters, with a surface cruise speed of 9 knots and an underwater speed of 4 knots. When functioning as a boat, the vessel features a massive sundeck fitted with a freshwater pool, a bar, and a luxurious dining table. This al fresco arrangement is retracted before the submersible slips below sea level.
A newly invented, completely pressure-resistant electrical tender is stowed under the Nautilus’s aft deck and will stay outside while diving. This tender may also be used for transporting five scuba divers underwater to the intended dive spot.
The underwater superyacht’s interior features a 50 sq. m dinner and lounge area with four circular windows. Each with diameters close to 4 meters. The proposed design for the submarine has a master bedroom and four staterooms, as well as sleeping quarters for up to six crew. There is also a fully equipped galley. However, interior layouts can be fully customized by the client.
The superyacht submarine will be able to stay underwater for up to four days. At cruise speed, the underwater endurance is six hours. When not in use, the Nautilus can be docked at any quay that can accommodate its 6.5-meter draft.
The price for the Nautilus starts at € 25 million. Once ordered, the new underwater superyacht can be delivered within 30 months.
