The luxury market is booming, and so is the yachting market and its derivatives, the so-called tender annexes and the “toys” for the rich, especially the pocket submarines, commonly known as “toys”
If this market explodes, it is limited by 3 factors:
- Unbridled competition on tenders, almost all boat builders and yachts are in this very buoyant market, the differentiating factors are therefore crucial
- A strong usage limit for toys: having a submersible creates difficulties such as launching, piloting – it takes special skills to use them – and the limit
- Finally the limit of space on a boat as big as it is strong, it takes room for tender and toy not to mention the means of lifting and storage duplicated with all that this generates in terms of cost, maintenance …
A yachting version called SWORDFISH of the platypus with great design capable of great performance with electric power and comfort on the water (the trimaran design gives it immense stability) combined with its semi submersible capability for 6 people would make this craft the perfect toy of the rich, not to mention its james bond side.
#1 A real solution for people with reduced mobility
Platypus allows people with reduced mobility to dive safely and easily. Adaptations in the form of equipment are being designed in collaboration with our Ambassador Handiplongée, Philippe STREIFF, former F1 driver, who became quadriplegic and now technical adviser to the interdepartmental delegate to the Road safety.
#2 A multi-function platform work
The Platypus allows to have a professional work platform and facilitates the realization of works in the low submarine funds Depth: Monitoring and maintenance of energy underwater installations (tidal turbine, tidal power plant….), industrial or aquaculture (oysters, mussels, etc.).
In addition to the touristic market, individual and especially yachtmen can use the platypus as a pleasure craft or a tender and use it in addition as a » toy » Submarine. Sport and luxury versions are planned to meet the expectations of this very specific market but standard version in their highest configuration can already meet expectations with the “Lagoon Explorer Yacht Edition“.
