Vietnamese conglomerate Vingroup has confirmed its purchase of the Triton DeepView 24 submarine and is expected to add it to the list of tourist activities at its resort in the south-central beach city of Nha Trang by the end of this year.

The Triton DeepView 24 can take 24 passengers to depths of up to 100 meters and offer them magnificent views thanks to its vast panoramic windows.

Passengers will be seated inside a 15.4-meter-long cabin equipped with modern air-conditioners.

The underwater vessel is manufactured by U.S.-based Triton Submarines Company, which is famous for its Limiting Factor submersible that last year made a record-breaking dive to the deepest point in the planet’s oceans, the Mariana Trench – 10,927 meters beneath the surface.

DeepView 24 is the most significant commercial tourism submarine to have been brought to the market in the past two decades, the company stated.

The submarine was developed in response to a rise in demand from travelers and tourists alike for adventure and experience-based holidays, it added.

According to Bruce Jones, co-founder and CEO of Triton Submarines, the Triton DeepView 24 with its panoramic view represents a quantum leap forward in submarine technology, providing a vastly improved, fully-immersive guest experience.

The vessel has been commissioned by hospitality firm Vinpearl, which is managed by Vingroup, to provide guest experiences on Hon Tre Island in Nha Trang City, located in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa.

The vessel was assembled at Triton’s manufacturing facility in Barcelona, where it successfully passed trials in March.

Visitors to Vinpearl Nha Trang will be able to buy tickets for DeepView 24 tours in December.
