Based in the Netherlands, U-Boat Worx is a company who specialise in producing small, easily operated submersibles for both private and commercial use. Their C-Quester model is designed primarily for pleasure use and underwater sight seeing, but this, the C-Explorer is intended more as an undersea work horse.

The U-Boat Worx C-Explorer features a completely new design when compared to the original C-Quester model. But underneath they share similar technology and proven systems.

New in the C-Explorer product line is a catamaran-style design that is combined with a fully acrylic pressure hull to result in optimal underwater viewing. The patented floaters are flexible bags encased in a housing that automatically folds in when submerging, thereby creating minimal drag and easy storage in a standard container or on board a ship.
