The Triton Deep View 24, built by Florida-based luxury submarine company Triton Submarines, finally launched last month, two years after delivery, at the Vinpearl complex on Hon Tre Island, Vietnam.
The 24-seater vessel, which can be submerged to a depth of 100 metres, features a transparent acrylic hull that provides an unparalleled underwater experience for those on board. During the 30-minute dive, travelers can view shipwrecks, coral reefs, and marine life, as well as a diving demonstration aimed at raising awareness of environmental issues.
Environmentally friendly, no sea pollution
The 15.4-meter Triton Deep View 24 is described as virtually quiet, completely eco-friendly, and emits no carbon dioxide and no waste water into the sea.
Vinpearl, the largest domestic hotel company in Vietnam, requested it in 2017 in response to a growing interest in adventure and experience-based holidays. The Triton DeepView 24, also known as Vinpearl Submarine Nha Trang, originally shipped in April 2020 and was scheduled to launch that year. However, his debut has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since then, the Vinpearl team has partnered with Triton to develop a diving program and provide comprehensive training for pilots and crew to try diving. The Vinpearl team anticipated early on what technology only Triton was able to develop and what that could mean for the overall guest experience.
Said Bruce Jones, co-founder and CEO of Triton Submarines.
Triton subs are handcrafted from high quality “optical perfect” acrylic to provide the clearest view. In 2019, the company made history with its 36000/2, a record dive to the deepest point in the world’s oceans, which also helped find and identify the bottom of plastic bags. CNN.
