Luxury submarine with revolving seats can carry nine passengers up to 656ft underwater

From flying cars to superyachts, many futuristic modes of transport have been revealed in recent years.

Now, the latest innovative vessel has been unveiled, in the form of a luxury submarine.

The submarine, called the U-Boat Worx Nexus Series, can carry nine passengers up to 656ft (200 meters) underwater.

It features a huge egg-shaped observation window and revolving seats, which ensure all nine passengers get an incredible view.

‘Coupled with first-class performance, U-Boat Worx’s signature revolving seating arrangement and incorporating a wealth of experience in commercial and private multi-passenger submarine operations, NEXUS offers those who seek the most undisturbed view a sense of otherworldliness,’ its Dutch developers said.

The submarine features 900-914 liters of interior space per adult and can have its seats placed in various configurations, with a maximum of nine people.

On both sides of the pilot, three full-size seats for adults are available, while the pilot has a fixed seat in the center.

Alternatively, the seats can be rearranged to accommodate one pilot, six adults, and two children, for a total of nine passengers.

‘The configurable seat allows a high degree of flexibility in your mission profile,’ the developers said.

‘No compromise will be made towards safety equipment, life support, or endurance and comfort.’

The large egg-shaped window lacks top or side-floaters on the exterior, giving passengers an immersive dive experience.

‘All occupants benefit from a clear line of sight in all directions, at all times,’ the developers explained.

If the submarine comes across something spectacular, the seats can then rotate to ensure all passengers get a good view.

‘The seating arrangements of the NEXUS involve revolving seating platforms, which allow passengers to have the best possible view regardless of the direction the submarine is traveling,’ the team said.

‘This design feature allows everyone to enjoy an unencumbered view and first-hand experience of deep exploration diving.’

While many submarines can only be accessed via restrictive ports, the U-Boat Worx Nexus Series is designed to be ‘highly stable yet deftly maneuverable on the surface.’

Passengers can climb on board via a 35-inch freeboard – the height between the hatch and the waterline – with strategically placed handrails, grips and steps making it easy to slide in.

In terms of speed, the submarine can travel at up to 3 knots (3.4mph), with a 62 kWh battery providing a whopping 18 hours of power.

Unfortunately, U-Boat Worx is yet to announce the price for a seat on board, a price for the entire submarine, or further details on how prospective customers can book.

MailOnline has contacted U-Boat Worx for comment.

This isn’t the first futuristic submarine revealed by U-Boat Worx in recent months – in October the Dutch company unveiled a $ 5.8 million electric ‘Super Sub’.

The bullet-shaped electric submarine is aimed at ecotourists who want to frolic under the sea with turtles, sharks and other marine life, and can reach speeds of eight knots.

The price tag on the Super Sub starts at $ 5.8 million for the base model, U-Boat Worx marketing manager Roy Heijdra told DailyMail.com.

‘The model itself is aimed at both private owners and commercial ventures,’ Heijdra said. ‘It wouldn’t be surprising to see a high-end resort operate a Super Sub in the near future.’
