Dive in comfort with Triton's new 6600/2 superyacht submarine

You'll be able to dive deep and in air-conditioned comfort with Triton's new 6600/2 submersible, which can take two people in 2,000 metres below the surface. Designed for launch from vessels, this is sure to earn a spot in our list of the best superyacht submarines soon.

Triton Submarines unveiled details of its latest all acrylic submersible at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, when CEO L Bruce Jones revealed the 6600/2 is capable of diving twice as deep as Triton’s 3300 series submersibles.

Jones said: “Like other Tritons, the transparent pressure hull provides remarkable viewing and the capability of diving over a mile deep adds tremendous versatility.”

Although it is similar in appearance to the 3300 series submersibles – with hulls that allow passengers to board after the vessel has been deployed into the water – there is a significant functional development on the new model: the passenger compartment of the new Triton 6600/2 remains at surface pressure irrespective of diving depth and is engineered utilising a new technique developed by Triton’s acrylic manufacturing partners.

Designed to launch from vessels equipped with suitable deployment systems, the Triton 6600/2 has a maximum 10-hour dive duration, although its life support system will operate for up to 96 hours. The 6600/2, which weighs 6,500kg, is 3.95m (13ft) long, 2.5m (10.8ft) wide and has a height of 2.1m (6.9ft).

Ron Stamm, Triton Submarines project manager, said: “It should take about an hour for the sub to get down to its maximum depth but once there, the pilot and passenger will have plenty of time to investigate a wreck or some other artefact on the bottom, and shoot video if desired.”

The viewing experience will be aided by six 20,000-lumens lights as standard, but owners will be able to add more if needed, especially to support their film operations- an area Triton is active in with its Triton Multimedia Productions partnership.
