A Luxurious Undersea Vehicle

For you, the discerning consumer, here’s the best and newest undersea yacht. What’s that? You say they’ve already invented that? You say it’s called a submarine? You crazy. This is a submarine for people who want a pleasure cruise, not a U-boat can of sardines situation. This sassy lady can run on diesel or switch to electric propulsion. The inner surface is greater than 700mq, which, if you didn’t know, is large enough to have a good time in. Travel above the waves in the nice weather, cruise underneath them when the storms start to stir.

The entire craft is 66.5m, this “U-101 Undersea Yacht” is sleek, aerodynamic, and sexy. Above the waves you can drive your little single-person jets up to the back deck and walk right on or off. Dive off the sides, have a drink up top, anything. Inside’s not just big, it’s huge. Gigantic. Hugenormous. It looks like Dr. Evil’s meeting hall, and that’s only half of it. It’s so lux. So mag.

I’ll take two. Thank you.

Designer: Marina Colombo & Sebastiano Vida

    Very nice concept! +10

  • Lazar says:

    The concept is OK, but sometimes the concept is just a nice picture…I doubt if the designers have a clue what is the pressure under 10 m, 50m or 100m under water and how much balast you need to put this peiece of art really under water if you have so much open space inside. Not to mention all associated engineering problems of life support systems and mechanical design. This concept is just too far in the future. Real prototype must be all composites and carbon fiber and aerospace alloys…the price of engineering and construction of this concept will be enormous.

      You are probably right that the cost would be prohibitive and outrageous for mass production, but it should be noted that these are concepts for the super-rich, who don’t have enough toys to flaunt their status and for us to be fascinated with. A negative approach to designing will just give us another paddle boat…just my opinion. And I do like the concept and presentation.

    if say it was restricted to a 2m dive then it can be doable with the open sapaces but much more than that i think will be complicated in the physics department. you would not be able to support the hull structure i think..

  • wow, this is really cool, i wish i can ride that thing, hope it is possible.

    i wish i had the keys to mine, how deep do you think it would sit. could you take it on the river??? They should put solar panels, wind sales and turbines.and ya it does have alot of space that could be used in a different way (water filtration systems). maybe even a small water choper

    Com o U-boat 010 o comprador teria a chance de navegar sem medo de tempestades. com o perigo de uma tempestade o comprador submerge para uma profundidade segura e espera a tempestade passar.
    Não existe ondas preigosas e ventos destruidores, somente a calmaria.
    Impressionante a ideia de Marina Colombo e Sebastiano Vida.

    Aguardo a execução deste projeto. Obrigado,

    Henrique de Aguiar.

    I’m glad that I’ve found your http://www.yankodesign.com site. I’m so surprised by your way of thinking and writing. Have you thought about writing a book?

    know what I could not find the safe dept or the distance or range of the craft. Size of crew passengers or underwater safe travel and underwater time table before running out of air. You know little thing that keep you alive. With the phoenix 1000 they give you all of the information. So what gives?

  • I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your
    blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to
    come back later. Cheers
