When designing each model, U-Boat Worx factors in a variety of specific solutions to ensure safe and effortless launch and recovery from any type of support vessel. The C-Researcher is no exception. Its single lifting point allows for safe and quick launch and recovery. Man-riding certification is standard to support lifting operations to take place with people inside the submersible, if desired.
Another unique feature of each U-Boat Worx submersible is the MARLIN Controller. This wireless remote control allows the operator or pilot to steer the submarine while it is on the surface – effortlessly guiding the sub away from, or back to, the support vessel.
Low height models
The C-Researcher series feature two special low height models designed to easily fit aboard most super yachts. The C-Researcher 3 LH – 500 has an impressive height of 185 cm and is capable of diving to depths of 500 meters, while the C-Researcher 3 LH – 1700 is only 230 cm tall and can travel to depths of 1700 meters. Both subs can carry 2 passengers and 1 pilot and can stay submerged for up to 16 hours.
Red dot design award
“C-Researcher 3” submersible has won a Red Dot Product Design Award. The international design competition – the “Red Dot Design Award” – is aimed at those who wish to distinguish their business activities through design. Outstanding design is selected by competent expert juries in the areas of product design, communication design, and design concepts. “Winning a Red Dot Product Design Award for the second consecutive year in a row is a crowning achievement for our company,” said Bert Houtman, Founder and Chairman of U-Boat Worx. “It reinforces to our clients that our products are world class.”
