Ask anybody and they will tell you all about their many travel plans for the future. While everyone is going to be busy surveying the beautiful planet Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx might just give us something to amp our plans. You need an adventurous streak, a desire to explore the deep depths of the ocean, a partner to share this experience with, and oodles of money to purchase what is the lightest manned submersible ever built. Dubbed the Nemo, the Submarine is designed for personal use and can take the pilot and a passenger down to depths of 330 feet, running for up to eight hours at a time. The submarine has already scored some good points with fantastic features like being lightweight (the submersible weighs in at only 5,510 pounds), it’s incredibly compact (Nemo is five feet tall, less than eight feet wide, and nine feet long) so you can store it on your yacht or tow it to your truck. Another noteworthy feature is the manta controller which brings with it intelligent pilot assistance functions such as “auto-heading” and “auto-depth”.
Do you wanna play pilot and take a passenger down to depths of 330 feet? Then U-Boat Worx Nemo submarine is your toy that carries a price tag of roughly $1 million. Sale starts at $1 million for a standard model – color, lights, sonar – with additional packages that encompass anything from improved lighting, sonar, and navigation, to a manipulator arm. It’s important to know that 12 days of full-time training is required in order to become a certified Nemo pilot.
