With the help of an innovative submarine, being able to watch what happens beyond sea level is no longer just a wish.
The marine world becomes "open to visitors", thanks to the intuition of the production house Triton. The two new submarines - the 660/9 AVA and the 660/7 AVA - have been designed with this very purpose, to offer everyone the opportunity to look in the water.
Their unusual shape and the presence of the large front glass have made these submarines real jewels. Many define them as underwater "home theaters", perfect for organizing couples or small events.
Let's take a closer look at what is new in Triton and what it could mean for the industry, getting ready for one of the most interesting news of the moment.
A submarine that becomes a cocktail bar
Thanks to the first rumors, we know that the cockpit of the 660/9 submarine has three times more interior space than the general average.
The "09" model offers eight seats for passengers and one for the pilot, while the "07" has six seats for passengers and one for the pilot.
The idea is to create small entertaining submarines, which will allow the public to closely observe the underwater world.
There are several possible transformations of the submarine, from an elegant cocktail bar to an underwater chapel for private weddings. Anything that requires no more than a certain amount of space and allows you to drive safely.
The most interesting aspect is the possibility to dive 660 feet deep, watching closely what happens "at the bottom of the sea". All participants have front row seats, watching exactly what the driver sees.
"Starting from the traditional constraints of a sphere or cylinder, we have been able to make meticulous finishing touches to the profile. (...) With an interior width of over 12 feet, the interior space will feel more like a normal room than a submersible and the visual experience will be absolutely extraordinary ".John Ramsay, designer of Triton 660/9
All the news of the Triton Subwoofers
In addition to the ability to reach a considerable depth, the new Triton submarine is configured so that the pilot is in the center of the machine.
Having full visibility, it will be able to move safely and help visitors find their way around. The interior of the subwoofers is precisely lit, the space is equipped with air conditioning and surround sound, so as to offer a complete and one-of-a-kind experience.
Getting into the submarine is much easier than you think. In the floating phase, the upper part - usually covered by the glass - is entirely uncovered. Passengers can then proceed to board without having to go through tight and annoying spaces.
Triton President Patrick Lahey believes Triton submarines could potentially revolutionize the diving experience. These are his words: "This model allows us to offer owners and passengers maximum flexibility to change and evolve their diving experience".
At the moment, the submarine AVA 660/9 has been ordered for a private yacht, a Scenic cruise and a resort, obviously for private use.
