Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx has launched its new ultra-compact 2-person “HP Sport Sub 2”, a high-performance submersible.
According to Founder and Chairman Bert Houtman, this remarkable submersible design is “suitable for all superyachts from 30 meters and up”. The luxury submersible has a 100-meter (330-feet) depth-rating and weighs only 2,200 kg. Add to that its ultra-low height of 136 cm (53 inches) and superb performance, and in the HP Sport Sub 2 you have easily the best choice among personal sports submersibles.
“The design is attractive, but above all, safe and functional,” says Houtman. “We’ve adopted a very different look compared to traditional submersibles, but without compromising safety and ease of use – the ability to easily board the craft at the surface, for example.”
According to company, HP Sport Sub 2 is a modern and streamlined submersible with fantastic performance. Whether at the surface or underwater, its speed and manoeuvrability are exceptional. Although this “subsea-Ferrari” was principally designed to maximize the excitement of diving, U-Boat Worx has created a full-fledged submersible.
U-Boat Worx’ HP Sport Sub 2 production models are scheduled for delivery for the autumn of 2015.
