Combining super yacht charter expeditions aboard yachts equipped with sophisticated and advanced personal submarines is a natural fit.
The concept creates the opportunity for new experiences diving to the remote regions of the world in extraordinary luxury and safety.
This explains why EYOS Expeditions Ltd and TritonSubmarines, have entered into a partnership that will somewhat the luxury super-yacht and private submarine industry.
Their clients will now be able to reach the most remote and wild locations on the planet- and then dive over 1,000 metres below the surface.
Together, the companies hope to offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences in areas that were virtually inaccessible to yachts only a few years ago.
The partnership will be broad and multi-faceted and allows the companies to work together on yacht design, yacht charters and scientific expeditions.
Working closely with yacht-owners (or charter clients), Eyos routinely guides vessels into pristine, seldom- visited areas by organizing, planning, permitting and leading the expeditions. Triton’s ability to mobilise and operate a submersible virtually anywhere in the world will give clients the opportunity to explore undersea far beyond normal cruising grounds for much less than it costs to purchase a new submarine.
Marc Deppe, VP of Marketing for Triton, emphasizes, “The most exciting aspect of these remote, deep dives is that we will be taking people to places that no human has gone before. There could be true discovery on every dive—whether exploring underwater hydrothermal vents in the South Pacific or going to underwater trenches in Antarctica, we might see something never before documented. This could be the perfect opportunity to discover a species and name it after yourself!”
Eyos Partner Rob McCallum adds, “Many yacht owners are looking into submersible technology not just for the private adventure and unique experiences a sub can provide, but because it leads to real exploration and a chance to make a direct contribution to marine science.
