The market for submersible personal undergoes a small revolution. Even if we are still far from a device accessible to all budgets, the Dutch manufacturer U-Boat Work has just announced a big price drop for its sous-marin Nemo. The device was launched in 2020 for almost a million euros, but only started to be available last year. Thanks to the increase in production, the manufacturer was able to cut its prices almost in half.
The Nemo exists in two versions. The Nemo 2, un submersible two-seater, is now sold for 590,000 euros. U-Boat Work also offers the Nemo 1 for solo exploration at 545,000 euros. It’s a real bargain in a market where prices are generally positioned from the million.
