Submersible Boats for Sale
Oceanic Exploration Taken to the Ultimate Level
The ocean is the largest mass on the planet and even though most people believe that every inch of it has been discovered, there are many places within the ocean that have yet to be fully explored. Oceanic exploration is much more than simply putting on a wetsuit, strapping on an air supply, and diving down deep. The human body is designed to breathe oxygen and maintain a specific pressure to survive. The extreme pressure in the deepest depths of the ocean makes it impossible for a diver alone to reach and explore the area thoroughly. Since 1775, deep oceanic exploration has been accomplished by submersible boats.Read More
What is a Submersible Boat?
Submersible Boats has evolved into a common term today, but in 1775, the very first person, David Bushnell, was able to safely go into the depths of the ocean. The original concept of the vessel was to allow one or two individuals to explore the ocean floor in a manner that did not put extreme pressure on the human body. Although diving must be accomplished in stages to allow the human body to properly, the submersible boat has become the premier exploration tool for science enthusiasts and even treasure hunters, but it did not actually start out that way.
Modern Submersible Boats
When seeking a modern submersible boat for sale, there are some things to consider. Submersible boats are not merely able to dive deep into the water without some form of assistance. They require the use of a support boat and a crew to keep track of the vessel, much like the way a tender boat and a yacht pair together. When in use, the submersible boat should be tethered to the parenting boat in some form or fashion.
There are a few submersible boats which are independent, meaning that the LOA and the motor configuration allows for it to function without a parenting vessel. These submersible boats tend to resemble more of their forefather submarine design than the modernistic and compact designs. These elite submersible boats tend to be custom made to the purchaser’s specifications. While you may be able to accommodate such a craft pre-owned, the availability may be limited.
Preparing to use your submersible boat
Apart from general diving instructions, especially pertaining to a safe approach to deep-sea levels, the user should also maintain some form of medical monitoring device. As the boat dives into compressed areas of the ocean, and as the body is not accustomed to such pressure, safety and monitorization of the passengers is paramount. Use due diligence in your planning and in equipping your submersible boat for launch.
Visibility is critical to a safe launch. Most of the brands equip the submersible boats with both bow and aft lighting. Additional spotlighting may be available on certain models. To find specifics about a particular brand, please see either the manufacturer summary page or the model review pages for details.
