U-Boat Worx just unveiled a sub designed for underwater parties – Robb Report
U-Boat Worx has named its newest member of the fleet the Underwater Entertainment Platform, or UWEP for short, but, well, we prefer party subs.
The first of its class, the singular submarine spans 115 feet from tip to tail and can dive approximately 650 feet below the waterline. The Dutch company, which specializes in private and commercial submersibles, says the vessel has been designed to host the “most prestigious and memorable events on the planet”. To this end, it can be fitted with a range of equipment to facilitate all manner of evenings on the high seas.
The interior spans over 1,600 square feet and can accommodate 120 guests, plus crew. The multipurpose space can be configured by the owner (or operator) to include a 64-seat restaurant, underwater gym, or underwater casino, for example. Of course, a luxury toilet and a large kitchen are standard.
The party basement could also be used as a venue for weddings, exhibitions, presentations, performances, etc. Think of it as a mini cruise ship that can take you and your party under the waves. Oh, and the air-conditioned cabin is fully pressurized, so there won’t be any need for decompression after your trip under the waves.
To top it off, the UWEP is equipped with 14 large windows that provide sailors with unobstructed views of the deep ocean and teeming marine life. It is also equipped with a series of exterior lights that illuminate the surroundings and add a bit of extra pizzazz to night dives.
The party never has to end either. The fully self-contained UWEP is battery powered and can operate continuously for 24 hours. Between voyages, the submarine can be reloaded and resupplied at a harbor or floating dock.
“UWEP will disrupt both the submarine and hospitality industry and pave the way for bespoke underwater events,” U-Boat Worx Founder and CEO Bert Houtman said in a statement. a statement. “We will not only present an exceptional experience for the most discerning clientele, but also a business opportunity that will benefit entrepreneurs and contribute to our understanding of the oceans.”
The best part is that U-Boat Worx is already evaluating suitable partners and locations. Get ready to party.
