AURORA PERSONAL SUBMARINE TECHNOLOGY

The AURORA-3C personal submarine is a compact private submersible in size and light in weight, that holds 1 pilot and 2 passengers, and is a 1 Atmosphere, ABS or DNV-GL Classed, vessel with a depth rating of up to 470m (1542ft). The configuration of this private submersible provides the occupants an exceptional view, unobstructed by top hatches and side pontoons and offers the largest spacious cabin space compared to any other private submarine in its low weight category. The personal submarine is horizontal when underwater but is tail up when docked to a yacht at surface and provides this private submersible a secure walking deck for safe boarding of passengers.


Optimal Geometry

PERSONAL SUBMARINE EXCELLENT FIELD OF VIEW

The Aurora-3C personal submarine field of view is greatly enhanced by moving the access hatch away from the top of the window into a separate compartment behind the main cabin. The personal submarine unique ability to tilt at surface provides an extremely stable platform for boarding from a yacht and does not require obtrusive forward pontoons that severely restrict peripheral viewing. A specifically designed aft section on the private submersible provides an ideal docking configuration that can be firmly secured to a yacht, as opposed to some awkward geometry. This well thought out approach for this personal submarine, derived from experience is important in ensuring safety and comfort for operating the personal submarine from a yacht, even in rough sea conditions.

SAFE PERSONAL SUBMARINE BOARDING

When floating at surface, the Aurora private submersible offers a solid and stable platform with a high freeboard and a horizontal walking deck, assisted with telescoping hand rails, to guide passengers from a yacht to the large top hatch on the submersible. The purposely designed stern on this personal submarine provides a secure docking arrangement for the personal submarine to enhance the convenience of the boarding process from a yacht, important for rough weather operation.


Easy Entry Configuration

COMFORTABLE PERSONAL SUBMARINE CONFIGURATION

The personal submarine is tail up when at surface and the top deck is horizontal. In this configuration the private submersible cabin seats are tilted back so that occupants are sitting horizontally. Once the yacht passengers have boarded the submersible and the hatch is closed, the personal submersible will submerge and its angle will change to a normal attitude once underwater. Accordingly, the cabin seats return to a horizontal position for the remainder of the dive.

COMPACT SIZE & LIGHT WEIGHT

LARGE COMFORTABLE INSIDE DIAMETER WHILE STILL HAVING LOW DRY WEIGHT

The AURORA-3C personal submarine offers the largest inside diameter for the occupants compared to any other private or personal submersible in its weight category. The compact configuration allows the personal submarine to be stored or transported in a standard shipping container. Futhermore, the submarine's low height and even lower hoist point makes this submersible ideal for setup in confined spaces without compromising on comfort, practicality, robustness, and performance.

SEAmagine Personal Submersible Pilot Training Program

SEAmagine provides a well-structured private or personal submersible pilot training program developed over many years and initial developed in conjunction with the US Coast Guard. The program includes supporting the private submersible's initial setup on a yacht and train submarine pilots as well as support crews to handle submersible operations aand to handle general maintenance.

THE AURORA PERSONAL SUBMERSIBLE UNIQUE BOARDING ARRANGEMENT

The Aurora perosnal submarine's unique entry configuration from a yacht provides a safe horizontal deck with rails leading to a large hatch. At surface, the private submarine adopts a tail up attitude giving a horizontal walking deck, and is docked aft to the yacht. The large docking rail ensures a secure docking configuration for tie down to the yacht. The top deck hand rails are raised for boarding the private vessel and lowered for diving.
