A leader in manned submersibles, U-Boat Worx has been supplying Superyachts with the popular U-Boat Worx Super Sub for some time now. However, they’re now excited to announce the launch of a completely new class of submarines, the U-Boat Worx Under Water Entertainment Platform – designed to host the most prestigious and memorable events on the planet.
Also, called the “UWEP” for short. This innovative submarine is a completely autonomous submersible with a capacity for up to 120 guests, excluding crew. Guests will experience diving to depths up to 200 meters in comfort and style. All whilst being free to walk around, just as they would aboard a cruise ship!
The operator can configure this new class of submarines which has 150 m2 (1,600 ft2) of floor space. Its features will include an underwater restaurant, with 64 seats, a subsea gym, or a deep-sea casino. As a multi-purpose venue, the UWEP is suitably prepared to host product presentations, parties, weddings, conferences, or any other stage-based performance, in the most unique setting imaginable.
On board, you’ll find fourteen windows connecting the guests directly to the fascinating underwater world. Additionally, there is a series of exterior lights to illuminate the surroundings and add an extra dimension; whether it be for night-time diving or deep-sea dining experiences.
The UBoat-Worx Under Water Entertainment Platform runs solely on batteries and can operate non-stop for 24 hours. For the convenience of the guests, the air-conditioned UWEP is fully pressurised, so there is no need for decompression. As well as, luxury washrooms and a submersible galley for dining on board.
Between cruises, the UWEP can be recharged and reprovisioned in a port or floating dock. During this time, guests can comfortably board the submarine via its two grand access hatches.
The Founder and CEO of U-Boat Worx, Bert Houtman adds:
“The UWEP will shake up both the submarine and hospitality industry and lead the way in bespoke underwater events. We will not only present a stellar experience for the most discerning clientele but also a business opportunity that will benefit entrepreneurs and contribute to our understanding of the oceans.“
Roy Heijdra, Marketing Manager for U-Boat Worx adds:
“Our goal as a company has always been to make the oceans more accessible for everyone. With the launch of our UWEP we can truly say that U-Boat Worx provides ‘your gateway to discovery’.
The UWEP sundeck:
The U-Boat worx under water entertainment platform features a sundeck with over 85 m2 of deck space. It’s complete with safety railings for guests to relax and watch the sunset after an exhilarating dive.
Note – U-Boat Worx is currently reviewing opportunities with pioneering entrepreneurs and leading hospitality groups to select the most suitable locations.
