UBW is empowering individuals and scientists to discover what lies
beneath the unexplored surface of the sea. Clients can go on their own
personal quest or simply enjoy the underwater scenery and aquatic life.
Several clients have already chartered the submersible together with their
own yacht. "They feel like real explorers when they are diving on unexplored
sites 100 meters below the surface," says Charlotte Schroots of UBW.
Professional researchers and offshore companies are also amongst UBW's
client portfolio. Submersibles can be a costly asset, therefore a flexible
charter option is a valuable alternative.

The submersibles have advantages over SCUBA diving by allowing the
passengers to reach greater depths and stay underwater for extended time, in
a dry, relaxed, comfortable, and spacious environment. Unlike SCUBA diving,
the passengers will not experience any pressure inside the submersible nor
do they require extensive training. UBW submersibles are powered by
state-of-the-art Lithium-ion Batteries that are capable of packing more than
three times the energy. This ensures the submersibles to perform diving
operations up to six hours, emitting zero pollution into the ocean.

UBW will arrange the crew, all necessary support equipment,
transportation to the desired destination and also accessories like HD
camera's, manipulator arms, lights and advanced tracking systems.

During consultation with UBW, the client will decide which submersible
will fit the needs of the mission. The company also has several exclusive
itineraries that can be suggested to clients who are unfamiliar with the
underwater world.

The available models are the "C-Quester 3" and the "C-Explorer 2". The
C-Quester 3 is a 3 person submersible and the C-Explorer 2 is a 2 person
submersible based on a full 360-degree transparent pressure hull, giving
occupants the best unobstructed view possible. Both vessels have a maximum
operating depth of 100 meters and for comfort both models are equipped with
a powerful air conditioning system. In the near future other models with
extended depth capabilities will be added to the fleet.
