Inside The Opulent Interiors Of The Nautilus Superyacht Submarine
The Monaco Yacht Show will feature the U-Boat Worx Nautilus, a stunning luxury submarine concept with opulent interiors and advanced features.
The Monaco Yacht Show is showcasing an array of impressive superyachts this month, but one that stands out is the U-Boat Worx Nautilus submarine concept. This stunning vessel combines a private yacht with a fully functional submarine, offering a depth rating of 656 feet and a speed of 10 knots both on the surface and underwater. With a range of 3,200 nautical miles, the Nautilus can stay submerged for up to 18 hours and comfortably accommodate ten guests. It even includes a pressure-resistant electric tender on the exterior aft deck.
The opulence of the Nautilus is evident in its design, boasting a large sundeck with a saltwater pool, a stylish bar, and a lounge area that retracts before submerging. The interior is equally extravagant, featuring a spacious dining room and lounge with expansive windows, a master stateroom, four guest rooms, a full galley, and accommodations for seven crew members.
Unlike traditional submarines, the Nautilus is designed as a submersible superyacht, prioritizing luxury and comfort. It offers an advanced air filtration system for supreme comfort and unparalleled views of marine life. The talented yacht designers at Officina Armare have collaborated to ensure that being on board the submarine is a cutting-edge experience.
One of the standout features of the Nautilus is the Mezzanine Observation Lounge, which provides panoramic views of the surrounding waters. This unique space offers guests a different perspective from the traditional deck level and can be accessed from a grand staircase. The lounge allows for dramatic up-close views of marine life and is designed to keep the main focus on the underwater world.
Another remarkable space on the Nautilus is the Foredeck Lounge. This area is designed to be dark enough to highlight the underwater views while still providing a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Inspired by cozy chalets in the Alps, the lounge features low-profile seating that offers excellent observation opportunities.
The Maindeck Sunken Lounge is located below the main deck level, providing better visibility and custom-designed furniture. Lounge mattresses are placed on the window structure, creating a functional space for reading. The lounge also features a pop-up TV screen that can be hidden during observation mode, allowing guests to synchronize with the underwater life.
The saloon on the Nautilus is the social hub of the vessel, offering a spacious and open area for guests to relax and enjoy the journey. With plush seating, elegant decor, a fully stocked bar, and state-of-the-art technology, including a large flat-screen TV and surround sound system, the saloon is the epitome of luxury.
Dining on the Nautilus is a delight, with a large galley on the main deck serving food directly to the ten-person dining area. The dining space features low-back armchairs and floor lamps, creating a sense of dining in a larger space. The bar, designed with carved wood and elegant decor, is the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy cocktails while marveling at the underwater world through the expansive windows.
The master cabin on the Nautilus is a haven of luxury, designed for ultimate comfort. Parametric walls surround the seating area, creating a feeling of being deeper underwater. The cabin also features a half-main window that creates a lower structure underneath the bed, complete with LED displays that give the impression of floating in the air. The master cabin includes a full bathroom with a bathtub and walk-in closet, and its darker color scheme provides a sense of privacy.
The guest staterooms on the Nautilus offer beds placed directly in front of the windows, providing guests with a perfect view of the underwater world. Each room is equipped with a work desk, a designer chair, a designer rug, a wardrobe, and a lounge mattress for leisurely viewing. The guest bathrooms are strategically placed between the windows to maximize headroom and feature stand-up showers.
The Nautilus prioritizes comfort throughout, including in the elevator and hallway areas. The elevator seamlessly transports guests between decks and features a round LED display on the floor, creating the illusion of being at the bottom of the ocean. The hallway, with its high ceilings, resembles a luxury hotel and is adorned with parametric panels for warmth. The guest cabins, with their large windows, are easily accessible from the hallway.
Despite its compact size, the gym on the Nautilus is well-equipped with a full range of Technogym equipment, including a treadmill, stationary bike, weights, and a Bang Olufsen sound system.
For easy access to the water, the Nautilus features a retractable beach club and a swim platform. The beach club can be furnished with lounge seating and chairs, allowing guests to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and other water activities.
The Nautilus is not just a luxurious vessel; it is also fully functional for extended underwater exploring. It can operate independently for up to 55 hours and has a range of approximately 110 nautical miles at 2 knots. Its diesel-electric propulsion system ensures quiet operation, allowing passengers to immerse themselves in the peacefulness of the underwater world. The Nautilus opens up new possibilities for longer and more daring underwater journeys.
U-Boat Worx has established itself as a leading company in the field of commercial and private submarines, making the Nautilus concept even more exciting. With a starting price of $25 million, this extraordinary vessel can be built and delivered to its owner within 2 1/2 years.
Moravia Yachting is the exclusive international partner for the sale of the U-Boat Worx Nautilus submarine. Niel Gow from Moravia Yachting expresses his excitement about the partnership, describing the Nautilus as the pinnacle of technological development in the yachting and submersible sector. He believes that owning this craft is a genuine opportunity to fulfill the dreams of many.
