New lightweight, low profile Triton 1000/3 LP designed specifically to fit into existing yacht tender garages. Triton Submarines (Triton) announced that it will introduce its newest model, the Triton 1000/3 LP (Low Profile) at the 2014 Monaco Yacht show September 24-27. Triton’s model line now includes eleven models configured for two to eight passengers with depth ratings from 1,000 feet (305 meters) to 5,500 feet (1,675 meters) as well as the full ocean depth rated Triton 36000/3. Yacht-based submersibles continue to gain popularity in the yachting community. Until now, size and weight restrictions for existing tender garages have kept many yachts from integrating a sub. Triton’s CEO, Bruce Jones thinks that is about to change. “The Triton 1000/3 LP will make it possible for most larger yachts to carry a submersible. It’s an absolute game changer, and we are excited to be introducing the design in Monaco.” At only 5.6 feet tall (1,700 mm) with a modest crane weight of 7,650 pounds (3475 kg) the Triton 1000/3 LP is the world's lightest and most compact three-passenger deep diving submersible (1,000 foot/305 meter depth rating). The Triton 1000/3 LP design was driven by the demand for a submersible design that could be integrated into existing superyacht tender garages without the need for a major refit
