Here is a novel gift idea for the yachtsman who has everything, the five person C-Explorer 5 from U-Boat Worx. Personal submarines are increasing found on the toy inventories of the trendiest megayachts and with just a few deck modifications your yacht can piggyback this handy submersible, which debuted this year at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The C-Explorer 5 can dive up to depths of 300 meters for up to 16 hours and is equipped with six powerful thrusters, a robotic manipulator arm, imaging sonar, high-intensity LED lights and many other features. There is even a small Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) that can fly out the C-Explorer 5 enabling passengers to view spots the submersible cannot reach.
The C-Explorer 5 gives yacht owners and guests the ability to explore below the ocean surface to a depth of 1,000 meters in a dry, climate controlled, high performance submersible with panoramic views. The U-Boat Worx C-Explorer 5 model features a full 360-degree acrylic pressure hull and reaches a maximum speed of 3 knots.
The C-Explorer 5 is the largest model to be launched by the company to date, whose models range from a diminutive 2-person on up. All models are Lloyd’s compliant and require a qualified pilot to operate. The company provides instruction and licensing.
