Planning to visit the wreckage of Titanic that lies at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, some 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) underwater, before the so-called “extremophile bacteria” devours it clean in a couple of decades time? If so, we heard there are tours for it, but if you are more of the adventurous, James Cameron type, you may want to dive deep to see the wreckage first-hand in your own sub.
And in your own sub is what the Triton 13000/2 Titanic Explorer will let you do. Not only can this private submarine is capable of diving to more than 13,000 feet to reach the famed wreckage, it is also touts versatile operation too – thanks to its Gull Wing design and Triton’s Direct Dive system.
“With the wings retracted, the submersible is streamlined for ascent and descent, and capable of maneuvering in and around incredibly tight spaces. With the wings partially deployed, the Triton Titanic Explorer’s Silent Glide feature enables to the submersible to track objects, maintain a heading and glide towards points of interest without engaging its eight, direct-drive thrusters.”
When the Gull Wings are fully extended, it raise the vehicle’s propulsion up and away from the seabed, thus ensuring your glide underwater will not disturb delicate species or free-floating objects.
The underwater vehicle further boats LED lights and exterior cameras for capturing those magical moments, and did we mention that it is the world’s only acrylic-hulled submersible commercially certified to dive in excess of 13,000 feet?
