by Dayana Aleksandrova Mar 30, 2021

A new superyacht design feature promises to transport passengers safely and quickly under the sea for a thrilling submerged experience.

The innovative tech development is called “The Hydrosphere” and will be able to accommodate up to seven people at once. The project is being led by Gresham Yacht Design, a UK-based company that offers personalized services to those who want to upgrade their yacht.

“There is a large demand for personal submersibles, which require hangar space and specialist operations to deploy, which takes time,” Steve Gresham, Gresham Yacht Design founder, told CNN Travel. Gresham went on to explain that this new technology will take a matter of minutes
utilize, offering yacht owners and their guests the freedom to go on a spontaneous underwater adventure and view marine life at the drop of a hat.

“The best thing about the Hydrosphere is that it can be operated very quickly and easily. Unless you happen to be under the water when The Hydrosphere is deployed, you wouldn’t know it was there,” he said.

The concept can be replicated and added to existing vessels measuring over 295 feet or integrated into the design of new builds. So far, the project is still in the design stage. Gresham Yacht Design hopes that enough interest will be generated for it to come to fruition.

“Anyone who loves the sea and wants to immerse themselves in their environment will be attracted to this idea,” Gresham said, noting that the technology already exists and the feature would not be too difficult to construct.
