UBW is empowering individuals and scientists to discover what
lies beneath the unexplored surface of the sea. Clients can go on
their own personal quest or simply enjoy the underwater scenery and
aquatic life. Several clients have already chartered the
submersible together with their own yacht. They feel
like real explorers when
they are diving on unexplored
100 meters below the surface, says
Charlotte Schroots of UBW. Professional researchers and offshore
companies are also amongst UBW’s client portfolio. Submersibles can
be a costly asset, therefore a flexible charter option is a
valuable alternative.

The submersibles have advantages over SCUBA diving by allowing
the passengers to reach greater depths and stay underwater for
extended time, in a dry, relaxed, comfortable, and spacious
environment. Unlike SCUBA diving, the passengers will not
experience any pressure inside the submersible nor do they require
extensive training. UBW submersibles are powered by
state-of-the-art Lithium-ion Batteries that are capable of packing
more than three times the energy. This ensures the submersibles to
perform diving operations up to six hours, emitting zero pollution
into the ocean.

UBW will arrange the crew, all necessary support equipment,
transportation to the desired destination and also accessories like
HD camera’s, manipulator arms, lights and advanced tracking

During consultation with UBW, the client will decide which
submersible will fit the needs of the mission. The company also has
several exclusive itineraries that can be suggested to clients who
are unfamiliar with the underwater world.

The available models are the “C-Quester 3″ and the “C-Explorer
2″. The C-Quester 3 is a 3 person submersible and the C-Explorer 2
is a 2 person submersible based on a full 360-degree transparent
pressure hull, giving occupants the best unobstructed view
possible. Both vessels have a maximum operating depth of 100 meters
and for comfort both models are equipped with a powerful air
conditioning system. In the near future other models with extended
depth capabilities will be added to the fleet.
