Triton Submarines, pioneers of the leisure submersible market, unveil a series of projects as they continue to expand both the parameters of technology and the exploration of the world's oceans.

Following a remarkable 2019, which saw the Triton 36000/2 Full Ocean Depth submersible set new records in manned exploration during the Five Deeps Expedition, Triton Submarines report a start to 2020 which further reinforces the company's position as leaders in innovation of the submersible sector.

In just the first half of this year, Triton will deliver a total of three units: a Triton 3300/6 - the first six-person submersible capable of achieving 1,000m (3,280ft); the most significant tourism submersible of the last two decades - the DeepView 24; and the second in the Triton 1650/3 LP 'superyacht sub' series.

From the headquarters in Sebastian, Florida, the company also reveal the signing of a Triton 1650/7 Configurable - the world's first single-hulled, 500-meter capable, seven-person submersible.

Triton 3300/6

Thanks to proprietary construction techniques developed in collaboration with partners Röhm and Heinz Fritz in Germany, the Triton 3300/6 features the largest acrylic pressure hull produced to date. A staggered 'stadium seating' arrangement ensures each occupant an uninterrupted panoramic view for a unique optical experience.

Peerless in their capability of producing 1,000m capable acrylic hulled submersibles, the Triton 3300/6 will represent the company's 11th unit certified for this depth.

"As the size of our client's vessels continues to grow, so we are experiencing a demand for submersibles that deliver extraordinary experiences for larger parties of guests. The Triton 3300/6 represents a milestone, not only in the technological development of the largest acrylic pressure hull ever produced but also in terms of allowing a larger party of guests to enjoy a true shared experience while accessing a significant measure of the world's oceans," states Triton's president Patrick Lahey.

Triton DeepView 24

Following scheduled sea trials in March, Triton's delivery of the first unit from their DeepView series will represent the most significant commercial tourism submersible launch in the last two decades. Commissioned by an Asian client to provide unique guest experiences at a number of entertainment resorts, the Triton DeepView 100/24 conveys 24 passengers and 2 crew members to depths of up to 100m (328ft).

Designed by the legendary Paul Moorhouse and assembled at Triton's facility in Barcelona, Spain, four cylindrical acrylic sections form the focal point of the DeepView's pressure hull, creating vast panoramic windows that deliver a truly immersive guest experience. From the comfort of the air-conditioned interior, passengers of the 15.4m (50.5ft) long submersible will engage with the ocean in a manner which far exceeds that of traditional tourism submersibles that feature restricted viewports.

Being modular in design, the number of acrylic sections can be varied, allowing Triton to deliver models in the DeepView series to accommodate anywhere from 12 to 66 passengers.

Triton 1650/7 Configurable

Described as 'a salon under the sea' due to its extraordinary interior volume, the Triton 1650/7 Configurable promises to offer the ultimate luxury experience of any submersible produced to date. While based on the Triton 3300/6 platform, the reduction of depth capacity to 500m (1,640 feet) dramatically increases interior volumes of the Triton 1650/7 Configurable. The additional 160mm internal diameter produces a capacious 6.34m3 (223.9ft3), adding almost 20% to that of the 1,000m diving version.

Typical of Triton's dedication to exceptional engineering, many of the 1,000m rated components and systems will carry over to this 500m diving model. The company reports they are also working with the interior designers of the host vessel to assure continuity of experience between platforms, creating a showpiece interior which matches that of the yacht in terms of styling, materials and quality. The additional volume not only creates space for an additional guest but also a flexible 'configurable' interior, a flexible seating arrangement which may easily and rapidly be re-configured from 7 to 5 seats, even between dives, offering more comfort and space.

Triton 7500/3

The above ventures follow the news from the conclusion of 2019, when Triton announced the signing of a contract to supply the Triton 7500/3 model to Project REV, the world's largest yacht in-waiting. Currently under construction and capable of diving to an astonishing 2,286m (7,500ft), the world's deepest diving acrylic pressure hulled submersible will feature an optically perfect sphere of 300mm, almost one foot, in thickness. In terms of going bigger, longer and deeper, Triton continue to lead the industry in innovation and technology, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of our oceans.
