The next generation of Tritons will include four, six and eight passenger models as well as a two passenger model rated for 5500 feet (1,675 metres) and the Triton 36000/3 Full Ocean Depth (rated for 36,000 feet/11,000 metres).
“Triton broke new ground with the Triton 3300/3. The 3300/3’s acrylic sphere is the largest and thickest ever produced for a submersible. Triton’s newest models will once again set the standard for performance and innovation," said Triton President, Patrick Lahey.
"We are looking forward to introducing our 4, 6 and 8-passenger deep submersibles at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show,”
Triton will also be featuring its submersible support vessel (SSV) designs, developed in partnership with Bury Design. The Triton Launch and Recovery Catamaran (LARC), is an efficient SSV capable of speeds up to 20 knots with a range of up to 1000 nautical miles. Priced under under $3 million, the 23m vessel is capable of launching and recovering any of Triton’s two or three passenger models in a wide range of sea states.
Triton launched its first yacht based submersible, the Triton 3300/3 in December 2011. It has been used in filming and marine science communities including for the capturing of video footage of the giant squid at depths of 600-900 metres off the coast of Japan.
Triton’s stand at the Yacht Show (#QS87) will be located in the “Darse Sud” tent near the main entrance.
