The luxury NEMO submarine was strategically built by renowned Dutch submersible manufacturer, U-Boat Worx. Inspired by the iconic Ford Bronco, the Aquanaut has “SUV like” stability and versatility. The boxy shape of the catamaran resembles that classic, rugged look of an SUV. Featuring a cutting-edge hydrodynamic design, the AQUANAUT is sure to provide a smooth and stable ride every time.
Once reserved for movies and TV shows, personal submarines have disrupted the luxury yacht market. The AQUANAUT catamaran provides the owner with a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of innovation. The 60’ (18.29m) open-style catamaran features a functional and intentional design. The advanced multihull luxury speeder combines modern luxury with cutting-edge innovation.
In terms of deck space, the Aquanaut is no exception. The ample deck space can be further expanded at anchor with bulwarks for hosting parties, family gatherings, and everything in-between. When it’s time for some relaxation, bask in the warmth and sunshine of the open-air jacuzzi.
The innovative and sporty catamaran is equipped with dynamic inboard propulsion of 2×800 hp to offer an impressive speed potential of up to 45 knots and extreme stability at high speeds with the contribution of its Deep-V hydrodynamic design.
The large platform on the back for the submarine is equipped with hydraulics that can lower down the underwater craft when launching is required. The same space can be used as a lounging / entertaining area when the submarine is in water and it can be lowered to water level and become the beach club as well.
The platform can go 0.75 m below the water level to launch the U-Boat Worx NEMO submersible. When it comes to the submarine capabilities, NEMO can dive to a depth of 330 feet and able to reach a top speed of three knots underwater. NEMO can operate for up to eight hours before returning to base.
With eight hours of exploration time, the possibilities are endless. The NEMO submarine is lightweight, compact, and versatile. Requiring less space than two jet-skis, the NEMO submarine can fit just about anywhere on your yacht, trailer, or garage.
The NEMO submarine has a single lifting point and can easily be placed on a flat surface without the need for a cradle or davit. NEMO is easily deployed onshore or from a ship. Recognized with a Red Dot award for its innovative design, the NEMO submarine is considered the “best of the best” in the category ‘Mobility and Transportation.’
