The lightest submarine in the world can be transported by ordinary car

Well-known submarine manufacturer U-Boat Worx (Holland) introduced the world's lightest submarine vehicle - Nemo. It can be delivered to the shore for further diving in a regular trailer and then towed to the dive site by boat or by a small yacht.

The Nemo is only 155 cm high and weighs 2,500 kg - it takes less space than a pair of jet skis for transport. Its speed under water is 5.5 km/h. The submarine is designed for 8 hours of autonomous operation at depths up to 100 m. Inside the Nemo can be penetrated through the top hatch.

The Nemo requires a special certificate to operate, but if necessary, the functions of the pilot can also be performed by an ordinary passenger with the Manta controller with autopilot capabilities, including automatic maintenance of course and depth. The vessel can also be remotely operated from the yacht or shore with the Marlin controller.

The Nemo submarine is valued at $1.5 million. Her production is expected to start when sufficient orders are received. It will be supplied with air conditioning, a wireless submarine communication system and a searchlight. Additional lighting, sonar, external manipulator and navigation package are available as options. U-Boat Worx also offers a 12-day management training course at its Sub Centre Curacao.
