U-Boat Worx' new high performance HP Sport Sub 2


Dutch submersible manufacturer, U-Boat Worx, has launched the HP Sport Sub 2, a high performance submersible easily accommodated on board any superyacht from 30 metres upwards.

The vessel has a 100 metre depth weighting and weighs 2,200 kg. Comfortably seating two people (one pilot and one passenger), she has a height of 136 cm and has an operational autonomy of up to six hours.

Founder and Chairman of the company Bert Houtman comments, “The design is attractive, but above all, safe and functional. 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.”

The HP Sport Sub 2 costs €1,000,000. Production models are scheduled for autumn 2015.
