Triton’s latest submersible at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2015

triton-submarinesTriton Submarines LLC, a leading builder of submersibles for yacht deployment, unveiled detailed information about its new Triton 1650/3 LP (Low Profile) submersible at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2015.
The latest model is a lightweight, low-profile version of Triton’s most popular personal submersible Triton 3300/3 and it is designed and engineered to take a pilot and two passengers to depths of 500 metres.
With a height of 1.8 metres and weighting only 4000 kg, the Triton 1650/3 LP can easily be stored in standard superyacht garages, deployed and retrieved from an adequately equipped tender bays. Moreover, the new model features Triton’s main ballast tanks, which make it easier for passengers to board it: it is possible to enter the submersible from the yacht’s swim platform or tender rather than to ‘ride’ inside it during the launch and recovery process.
Triton Submarines CEO L. Bruce Jones thus commented the new model: “The Triton 1650/3 LP is the natural evolution of our personal submersible line for the superyacht industry. We engineered it to allow a pilot and two guests to explore the ocean depths in an air-conditioned safe, one-atmosphere environment, while sparing the owner the expense of retrofitting his yacht with a special A-frame davit or running a separate support vessel.”
Featuring the same array of electronic systems as Triton 3300/3, the new model has a lighter acrylic pressure hull mounted in a partial steel enclosure. Thanks to a transparent spherical body and five powerful external LED lights, the submersible provides its passengers with an outstanding visibility underwater.
The first Triton 1650/3 LP is currently under construction at the builder’s facility in Florida, and is scheduled to be delivered in September 2016.
