The commercial version has a slightly different design from our standard version
NEYK. Because there is no need for deep diving the commercial version has a diving
platform of 900 feet (100m). This combines the optimal safety for passengers and
crew with an investment that fits your business model. No need to say that our commercial
version has an optimal layout for handling and seating unexperienced passengers.
The commercial version of our NEYK is designed with the comfort of paying passengers
in mind. That asks for extra more commonly recognised equipment as for instance an
extra wide entrance hatch with a stair instead of the more usual stepladder through
the con tower. Of course there is one in the tower but only for emergency only.
gives the two pilots excellent all-round visibility both on surface and on the sea
floor and is also equipped with
two multifunctional colour displays for each pilot.
8 ea flat acryl ic viewports on either side,

Excellent diving qualitie
of the NEYK design guarantees a very smooth ride where excellent and very predictable
manoeuvrability and hoovering capability of the vessel will provide every passenger
with the best views possible.
The handling of the submarine is very easy
with two joysticks. Standard it needs only a crew of two. The navigation instruments
have a standard for dead reckoning navigation only but can be extended with gyro’s
autopilot, sonar and more. The public address system can be fitted with underwater
microphones to transfer the sounds of the sea life like whales and dolphins. Provisions
for extra cabin personal and a pantry can be made. The oxygen and air supply is over
dimensioned to last
8 to 9 dives daily without refilling or changing air bottles.
