A company has unveiled the interiors of a £22m superyacht-submarine hybrid inspired by a classic Jules Verne book, reports Wales Online.

Ultimate adventure vessel

Dutch boatbuilder U-Boat Worx claim the Nautilus is capable of serving as a private yacht and a fully functional submarine. Described as the “ultimate adventure vessel”, the firm say it will be able to dive 150 metres and cover a range of 3,200 nautical miles.

The company previewed the vessel’s exterior late last year, but have now unveiled the interior created in partnership with design studio Officina Armare. The quirky design has been influenced by Verne’s 1870 novel ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’.

It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine, the Nautilus, as they embark on a journey beneath the seas. The Nautilus features spacious guest rooms, a master cabin with private en-suite, and a mezzanine observation lounge that provides panoramic views of the underwater world.

The central space, dubbed the Saloon, is described as the perfect place to relax, entertain, or work. Main deck and foredeck lounges are designed for guests to unwind and enjoy a drink while floating and cruising at the surface.

Ultimate combination of luxury and innovation

There is a state-of-the-art gym with treadmill, stationary bike, and weights, while the sundeck features a bar and jacuzzi. The Nautilus, designed to explore the most exclusive and remote destinations on Earth, is powered by diesel-electric propulsion and a lithium battery system.

Bert Houtman, U-Boat Worx CEO, says: “The Nautilus embodies the ultimate combination of luxury and innovation. Our collaboration with Officina Armare has resulted in a truly exceptional vessel. Our goal has always been to share the wonders of the underwater world with people in the safest, most luxurious and comfortable way possible. The Nautilus is the realisation of that vision. We invite you to come and experience the thrill of underwater exploration for yourself, on board this one-of-a-kind vessel.”

U-Boat Worx says the Nautilus can be delivered within 30 months.
