The Silvercrest ECO-SUB is a 24-passenger carrying submersible designed to carry occupants to a depth of 100m. Its acrylic viewport configuration offers all passengers a superb panoramic view of the underwater world. While a large access hatch, and the wide internal circulation space, makes this an ideal submersible for disabled passengers. This submersible has been designed to minimise the risks to the environment by the careful choice of its components and configuration, allowing its use in marine park areas where the underwater ecology is sensitive to disturbance.
This is a purpose built acrylic tourist submarine, designed for passenger comfort and safety.
