Boatbuilder unveils plans for £22million superyacht – which can transform into a submarine and go underwater for days

A boat builder has unveiled designs for a £22million superyacht that can also sail underwater for four days.

U-Boat Worx says his Nautilus vessel will have a pool, bar and sundeck, but will still be able to dive to a depth of 200 meters.

The groundbreaking superyacht is inspired by Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Named after the submarine in Jules Verne’s 1870 novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the Nautilus has ten four-meter-wide windows that offer “extraordinary views.”

They explain: “Ever since Jules Verne’s publication of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870, people have dreamed of a luxury yacht with diving capabilities.

“Since then, inventors have come up with many amazing concepts. Unfortunately, none of these designs were ever realized.

“As the world leader in small submersibles, U-Boat Worx has finally succeeded in developing a realistic combination of luxury and safety in a fully certified private submersible.”

U-Boat Worx Chairman and Founder Bert Houtman says: “People who have made the decision to buy a yacht must now consider whether the vessel of their choice can dive to 200 meters.”

The Dutch designers say the sub mode has another benefit – it beats seasickness in rough waters.

“When the sea gets too rough,” adds Mr. Houtman. “You just dive in and continue your journey in comfort. With the Nautilus, the yachting market will never be the same again.”
