Ocean Submarine comes what might actually be the world’s first luxury underwater vessel. This Netherlands brand is teaming up with Rolls-Royce, MTU, and Bosch to create the new Neyk Submarine – the 63-foot pressurized vessel, capable of speeds of 15 knots and depths of 500 feet carrying a dozen passengers. Neyk Submarine is the most manoeuvrable submarine in the world and it has an ultramodern teardrop-shaped design.
Even the superstructure merges fluently into a teardrop shape and is as smooth and slender as possible. The Neyk Submarine S 1 is modularly designed and available in either a 10, 12, 16 or 20 passenger configuration.
This ocean-going diesel electric submarine with a submerged displacement of between 103 and 108 tonnes has a high shock resistance and a low noise signature. The bow of the vessel has a large dome for the best view. Various lateral a forward facing spotlights ensure a bright and clear view for everyone.
Neyk can stay actively in one place by the use of two extra vertical thrusters placed in the dome on top of te tower that can give up and downforce. It can do this completely computerised.
Currently under construction in the Netherlands, the scale prototype, due to launch in january 2018, will be joined by larger 66, 72, and 79-ft models that feature the same teardrop form.
