The hybrid Nautilus submarine is inspired by Jules Verne’s classic novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
The Dutch submersible maker U-Boat Worx, which manufactures commercial and private custom subs, has released new images of the interior design for its Nautilus yacht-submarine concept.
The Nautilus submarine is a luxury vessel that dives to 150 metres under the ocean surface, and has a range of 3,200 nautical miles for exploring the most adventurous locations. The design ensures it could serve as both a private explorer yacht and a fully functional submarine.
U-Boat Worx originally showcased designs for the lavish 1,250-tonne, 37.5-metre vessel at the 2022 Monaco Boat Show.

Italian yacht design studio Officina Armare says it has integrated cutting-edge technology with upscale design about Nautilus. The yacht-submarine features spacious guest rooms, a master cabin with private en-suite, and an observation lounge that provides panoramic views beneath the waves. A central saloon is suited for relaxing, entertainment, or work.
“The Nautilus embodies the ultimate combination of luxury and innovation,” says Bert Houtman, chief executive of U-Boat Worx. “Our collaboration with Officina Armare has resulted in a truly exceptional vessel. Our goal has always been to share the wonders of the underwater world with people in the safest, most luxurious and most comfortable way possible. The Nautilus is the realisation of that vision.
“We invite you to come and experience the thrill of underwater exploration for yourself on board this one-of-a-kind vessel.”
The Nautilus submarine is equipped with a state-of-the-art gym, while its sundeck features a bar and jacuzzi. The vessel is powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system and lithium battery system.
