BREDA, The Netherlands, October 29, 2014 / PRNewswire –
The “HP Sport Sub 2″ heralds a new generation of ultra-compact, high-performance personal submersibles.
Renowned Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx has launched its new ultra-compact 2-person “HP Sport Sub 2″, a high-performance submersible ready to fit onboard any superyacht. It can even be towed behind a car.
According to Founder and Chairman Bert Houtman, this remarkable submersible design is “suitable for all superyachts from 30 metres and up”. The luxury submersible has a 100-metre (330-feet) depth-rating and weighs only 2,200 kg. Add to that its ultra-low height of 136 cm (53 inches) and superb performance, and in the HP Sport Sub 2 you have easily the best choice among personal sports submersibles.
“The design is attractive, but above all, safe and functional,” says Houtman. “We’ve adopted a very different look compared to traditional submersibles, but without compromising safety and ease of use – the ability to easily board the craft at the surface, for example.”
The result is a modern and streamlined submersible with fantastic performance. Whether at the surface or underwater, its speed and manoeuverability are exceptional. Although this “subsea-Ferrari” was principally designed to maximize the excitement of diving, U-Boat Worx has created a full-fledged submersible.
U-Boat Worx’ HP Sport Sub 2 costs ÃFlorinÂCentÃCentâ‚notÅ!Ã‚Ânot1,000,000 and production models are scheduled for delivery for the autumn of 2015.

The dream of conquering the world with a superior submersible available to general public began in the 1980s. Bert Houtman, founder of U-Boat Worx, had a revolutionary idea to create submersibles that would not only be operated by the military or vast research institutes, but by the public too. He realized that to do that he needed to build his own.
