Of all the places in the world where exploration and experience, still manage to generate interest, are the vast seas and what lays leagues below in the abyss. Science has crossed a long way in gathering information, but still a lot remains unexplored, generating interest amongst the scientific community, and even the vacationers who can shell out the necessary cash. Hence, to quench their thirst, some have even gone on to splurge on submarine vessels such as those we saw in the top 12 luxury submarines list. Now sharing a spot in this league with a unique concept of its own, the world’s first planning submarine has been revealed along with its own mother vessel to carry it around: The Q-Sub 2400. Designed by Hugh Fulton of New Zealand, this vessel will have the capacity for 2 adults.

With the Kiwi culture of finding problems to complicated issues, Mr. Fulton seems to have struck the right notes by building what is to become the first of a kind vessel in the world, which can be used for both planing as well as underwater tours. Catering to the bar of standards set by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), this vessel is capable of going to depths of up to 400 feet below sea level, and travel at considerable speeds of up to 20 knots. Even by speed boat standards, it is a considerable speed after mentioning that its primary function is different. In terms of the aesthetics and utility, the construction of the submarine has been done keeping in mind the ease with which a formidable sports car can be driven. Featuring a 2-passenger capacity, there are circular transparent acrylic windows through which the underwater eco-system can be seen, and observed for scientific purposes. Also the body design has been kept nice and sleek, without having any shortage of space inside. This helps preventing any form of claustrophobia when traveling below the waters. Since the weight is under check, it makes for easy movement to and from the surface area.
