Aquanaut, the SUV of the Seas - Officina Armare

Officina Armare, a Yacht & Transportation Design Consultancy have teamed up with U-Boat Worx, a Dutch submersible manufacturer to build a spectacular 60-foot Open-Style sport catamaran, known as project Aquanaut. Inspired by SUVs, this incredible 60-foot catamaran will offer anything you could need for a true adventure on the open seas, with ample storage for water toys like surfboards, Seabobs and professional diving gear.

But what’s striking is that it comes with a high-tech Nemo Submarine from U-Boat Worx, which allows you to go underwater and explore the deep seas all around the world. Aquanaut can accommodate up to 12 guests, with an advanced multihull design that’s influenced by SUVs in terms of stability and sense of exploration.

The luxury speeder also offers plenty of space for relaxation, with a large deck that features an open bar and al-fresco dining areas on the aft deck and foredeck. But this space can be expanded more at anchor, with bulwarks, perfect for you to host a small social gathering!

At the back there’s a large platform that holds the U-Boat Worx submersible, it could easily go down 0.75 m below sea level when you’re launching this stunning underwater craft. When the Nemo Submarine is in the water, this whole area can be raised to water level and turn into a beautiful beach club.

Aquanaut also boasts a nice relaxation area at its foredeck, with a large jacuzzi, a cosy sunbathing spot and an intimate dining area for up to four guests. The yacht will be powered by two 800hp Volvo engines, a dynamic inboard propulsion system with Volvo IPS drives that will take this beauty to a top speed of up to 45 knots, with extreme stability at high speeds thanks to its special Deep-V hydrodynamic design.     - Web:
