WATCH: UBW Presents New Research Submersible


U-Boat Worx (UBW), has launched a transparent 3-person submersible capable of diving to 1,700 meters the C-Researcher 3.

UBW, in collaboration with scientists has designed a compact, DNV GL-classed, submersible that enables scientists, policy makers and philanthropists to explore the world’s oceans.

According to the company, it is the first time that a spherical acrylic pressure hull is applied to reach these depths.

Bert Houtman, founder of UBW said: “Those lucky few diving our C-Researcher will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of a rich and diverse underwater scenery that has been hidden from mankind since the existence of our oceans.”

Unlike traditional research submarines, the C-Researcher 3 can be operated from a wide range of vessels including superyachts, and can also be transported in a shipping container.

In addition, optional tools can be mounted so that scientists can collect bottom samples and marine organisms, measure water conditions, create 2D/3D underwater maps and analyze the seabed.
