Submerse yourself in luxury
The ultimate toy to store in the hold of a megayacht must surely be a mini submersible. Triton Submarines, an attendee of the show, manufactures one to seven seater models, including the world’s deepest diving acrylic hulled submersible, capable of diving over 1.4 miles to the great depths of the ocean’s “bathypelagic zone”. An acrylic “bubble” surrounds the passengers providing an unobstructed view. The subs are used for scientific and personal expeditions, salvage, rescue and filming.
Open to the public as well as to professional visitors, hundreds of events will be organized by firms at the exhibition on board yachts and in the prestigious Monte Carlo luxury hotels.
