Triton Submarines (Triton) announced today that it will debut five new models at the 2013 Monaco Yacht show September 25-28. 

Triton set the standard for excellence in yacht-based submersibles in December 2011 when it launched the first Triton 3300/3, the company said, adding, the 3300/3's success in the filming and marine science communities including the first ever filming of the elusive giant squid at depths of 600-900 meters solidified its position as the world’s most capable production submersible.

The next generation of Tritons will include four-, six- and eight-passenger models as well as a two-passenger model rated for 5,500 feet (1,675 meters) and the Triton 36000/3 Full Ocean Depth (rated for 36,000 feet/11,000 meters).

Triton President Patrick Lahey said, “Triton broke new ground with the Triton 3300/3. The 3300/3’s acrylic sphere is the largest and thickest ever produced for a submersible. Triton’s newest models will once again set the standard for performance and innovation. We are looking forward to introducing our four-, six- and eight-passenger deep submersibles at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show.”

Triton will also feature submersible support vessel (SSV) designs developed in partnership with Bury Design. SSV designs include the unique Triton Launch and Recovery Catamaran (LARC), a highly efficient SSV capable of speeds up to 20 knots with a range of up to 1,000 nautical miles.  The 23-meter LARC is capable of launching and recovering any of Triton’s two or three passenger models in a wide range of sea states making it unique in the world. According to Tritan, at under $3 million, the price may be the LARC’s most attractive feature as it eliminates the need to own a large expensive vessel to operate a Triton.
