Default The Posh New Neyk Submarine

What I would do for one of these.

The Posh New Neyk Submarine

Quote:
Ocean Submarine is teaming up with Rolls-Royce, MTU, and Bosch to create the 63-foot pressurized vessel, capable of speeds of 15 knots and depths of 500 feet carrying a dozen passengers. The teardrop-shaped sub will have large through-hull windows like Captain Nemo’s Nautilus, but unlike the doomsday machine, the Neyk submarine boasts an opulent interior built by an aircraft interior firm. The sub will also have a bar, library, and complete galley.



Built of modular steel, the first model was chosen after three designs were tank-tested in pressurized chambers. The Neyk sub will have an innovative propulsion system consisting of exterior pod engines that pivot for tight turning. It can turn on its own axis in seconds when the engines are running in opposite directions. The engines also allow for rapid diving, which, the Dutch firm notes, is 10 times more efficient than a traditional cruciform sub design.


My question: why do they refer to it as the "first" luxury submarine? Over the years I have seen several builders of luxury subs and pictures of their machines. Are these all artists' renditions? Are none built?



Hmm... I think I answered my own question But why does it need a "SAM vertical launch system" (at 2:07) ??



If there are civilian subs they all look like the tourist type with 50 viewing ports or these research style subs.

Hmm, some technical queries:

What does the cockpit do to headroom in the cabin? Looks like the `pilot's` legs are dangled over the owners head.

Where are the stairs to go UP to the cockpit? Not in the virtual interior.

Doesn't seem much room for fuel and ballast tanks in the `innovative design`. Wishful Thinking drive, perhaps?

If they build it we will come.

IF, being the operative word...

Too many of these flights of fancy being passed off as `in construction`.

Just because you've got a 3d design package and you watched `Stingray` and Thunderbird 4 torching metal away from a space rocket stuck under the sea doesn't make you a sub designer.

What if some drug lord orders one or hi-jacks one to run his drugs past the Coast Guard. Perhaps a secret pinger to find her with if she is hi-jacked?
