Not only is Sir Richard Branson’s luxury catamaran Necker Belle one of the fastest on the water, she also boasts one of the world’s first underwater aircraft! Live out your James Bond fantasies with our 3-person aero submarine Necker Nymph which is usually anchored to the yacht’s top deck when she’s not berthed on Necker Island. The craft was tailor-made to Necker Belle’s exact specifications and is guaranteed to satisfy the ‘need for speed’ of even the most adventurous soul!
How does Necker Nymph work?
Basically it’s like flying underwater! Once launched the submarine dives down to a depth of 30 meters so you can explore the deep without having to get around by flipper power. It can travel at up to 6 knots under water with our trained pilot at the helm. Dives typically last from one to two hours and passengers wear normal scuba breathing gear.
