The future of the ultimate in luxury on the seas moves slowly underwater. With concepts like the Underwater Entertainment Platform (UWEP), U-Boat Worx has given us several reasons to look forward to old age. According to the company, the self-contained submarine has a length of 115 feet, which is more than qualified to describe it as a super submarine that can dive to depths of up to 656 feet. Simply put, it will feel like a stunning luxury yacht, but it will not stay under water and help you walk among the rich marine life. The spacious submarine can comfortably take 120 passengers on the trip of a lifetime. The windows in a submarine are your eyes to enjoy the wonders of life underwater, and in the case of UWEP, there are fourteen windows that enclose the submarine.
The concept takes into account every aspect of the fun for its passengers, so they’ve also added exterior lights to make nighttime diving captivating. Having said that, in a submarine, the interior space has to be well planned for obvious reasons. Fortunately, UWEP offers 1,600 square feet of floor space and several options that breathe life into the idea of deep-sea entertainment. The submarine can be configured in many variations, keeping social communication at its core. From a 64-seat underwater restaurant for an ocean dining experience to an undersea gym or casino, the possibilities with a customizable UWEP deck are endless.
I can already picture billionaires hosting business conferences and celebrities avoiding photographers for weddings and intimate parties aboard UWEP. Let’s talk about performance, as this aspect makes a huge difference when one is expected to go underwater 656 feet. UWEP is a sea monster, albeit a synthetic animal that can run non-stop for 24 hours on battery power alone. As shared with Boat International, the submarine can be reloaded and retrofitted at a floating port or dock, where guests can also board the submarine via two access hatches.
U-Boat Worx Founder and CEO Bert Hotmann said, “UWEP will rock the submarine and hospitality industry and lead the way in custom underwater events. We will deliver a great experience not only to the most discerning clients but also to a business opportunity that will benefit entrepreneurs and contribute to our understanding of the oceans.” ,” according to the Superyacht Times. Having lived a life of pure joy on land, even in the sky, it is time to explore the oceans behind super yachts and enjoy all their glory.
Submarines certainly look like the middle machine of the future, with Austria-based Migaloo Submarines also planning to build private yachts that would dive at 1,500 feet and sail underwater at 20 knots. These $2 billion personal submarines will provide a strong competition to the giant yacht perched on top with plush VIP suites, a helipad and even an open rooftop swimming pool. Roy Heijdra, Marketing Director of U-Boat Worx stated, “Our goal as a company has always been to make the oceans accessible to all. With the launch of our UWEP, we can truly say that U-Boat Worx provides your gateway to discovery.”
