A new party sub with capacity for 120 revellers to get down and jiggy for up to 24 hours (if they can last that long) is making waves in the hospitality industry.

The Dutch-built ‘Under Water Entertainment Platform’ (or UWEP for short) is a battery-powered 115 feet submarine that can dive to 650 feet and is singularly intended host the most ‘prestigious and memorable events on the planet.’

The under water boat spans an interior of 1,600 square feet for its 120 guests plus the crew, and can be configured to include a 64-seat restaurant (Michelin-starred, the designers suggest), a subsea gym, an aquatic casino or even a wedding hall.

The "Under Water Entertainment Platform", or UWEP for short, is a completely autonomous submersible

The UWEP has capacity for up to 120 guests, excluding crew.

Featuring over 150 m2 (1,600 ft2) of floor space, the sub can be configured by the operator, with suggested ideas including a 64-seat underwater restaurant, a subsea gym, or a deep-sea casino.

It was designed and built by U-Boat Worx, which specialises in both private and commercial submersibles, to ‘shake up the hospitality industry’.

As many as 14 large windows inside the pressurised cabin, along with exterior lights to illuminate the ocean depths beyond, will allow the guests to behold the wonders and mysteries of the sea while they enjoy the facilities within.

Conceived along the lines of a mini cruise ship that cruises under the waves, party goers will be free to roam the stylish and luxurious the submarine at will during the 24 hours it can run underwater before needing to surface to recharge.

The fully configurable 150 m2 floorspace creates not only the ideal space for a restaurant, casino or wedding venue but is perfectly suited for meetings and presentations and as well as corporate hospitality, networking and social events

The UWEP (Under Water Entertainment Platform) presents a new class of exceptionally spacious privately-operated entertainment submarines that can carry up to 120 occupants (excluding crew and staff) in a fully conditioned environment to a depth of 200 meters

Thanks to the abundant power supply, the UWEP can stay submerged for up to 18 hours with 120 guests. The number of dives you can make on one day is virtually unlimited, maximising your operation and return on investment

Once they do surface, there will be no need for decompression as is the case with scuba diving, as the air pressure in the lungs of each guest will be protected within the air-conditioned, fully-pressurised environment.

‘The UWEP will shake up both the and hospitality industry and lead the way in bespoke underwater events,’ U-Boat Worx’s founder and CEO Bert Houtman said in a statement. 

‘We will not only present a stellar experience for the most discerning clientele, but also a business opportunity that will benefit entrepreneurs and contribute to our understanding of the oceans.’

To top it all off, the UWEP also features a sun deck upon which revellers can stand while the boat is in port (or at least above the sea) to get some sun or admire a beautiful coastline.
