Some of the world’s most innovative water adventure companies are showing visitors how to shed new light on the ocean floor at the 25th Dubai International Boat Show. These deep sea submersibles are taking water wanderlust to new depths of planet Earth, allowing owners to access depths of a kilometre under the sea surface in comfort and safety.
Triton Submersibles, Seabreacher and Ortega Submersibles are all opening the eyes of thrill seeking visitors who are keen to explore the wonders of the world in the latest technology.
A bright yellow ‘machine of discovery’ which can access parts of the planet one could never otherwise reach is catching the eye of visitors at the show. Akin to an ‘inner space ship’, according to Patrick Lahey, President of Triton Submarines, the US$3.6million ‘Triton 3300/3’ reaches as deep as 3,300 feet (1,000 metres) and carries three passengers.
Lahey said: “These submersibles have been specifically designed to go on private yachts and allows you to sit in a pressure resistant structure that’s comfortable and quiet, air conditioned, and offers you a wonderful experience seeing parts of our world that you simply cannot see any other way. It’s truly a machine of discovery.
“Like any innovative product, it takes a while for the consumer to accept the concept. Our owners are typically people of vision who are open to trying new things. The experiences they’ll have are what start the conversation, and that is what gets people excited about submersibles.”
