Triton 1650/3 LP submersible
Triton Submarines has begun construction on two new models: the 1650/3 LP and the 3300/1 MD.
The 1650/3 LP—which dives to 1,650 feet, holds three people and has a low profile—was designed to meet increasing demand from yacht owners who want to carry a sub in their tender garage without having to refit the space. Triton developed a design that reduces the sub’s height to just shy of 6 feet and its weight to 8,580 pounds, “resulting in a vehicle that can be integrated into many yachts in the existing fleet without requiring modification to the tender garage or lifting systems,” according to a press release.
Also new is the Triton 3300/1 MD, which dives to 3,300 feet, holds one person and offers minimum displacement. It is the company’s smallest, lightest vehicle and is meant for use with larger Triton submersibles during salvage work, filming projects and scientific research.
