Mark Series Submarines
Mark II, also called LS 250, was the first ever tourist submarine built in Finland. The first Mark II’s were delivered to Saipan and Korea in 1987. The technology was largely inherited from its predecessors – offshore DLO’s
(Diving Lock-out Submarines), which were designed to be lifted onto the deck of a DSV (diving support vessel) after use.
Mark III is an excellent submarine with a proven track record of reliable operations. As technology quickly developed, the new submarine generation was named Mark V.
Mark V – a tourist submarine with no compromises! Mark V offers an exciting ride for any passenger wishing to safely and comfortably explore the underwater world. The vessel’s durability, impressive battery capacity, excellent maneuverability and easy maintenance makes it a profitable investment for the operator.
The passengers appreciate Mark V’s comfortable and spacious interior, with large windows for admiring the underwater world and a free standing height of 1.90 m! The vessels’ stability makes everyone feel safe throughout the dive and the air-conditioning ensures the air inside is pleasant to breathe.
The submarine offers many features, which will guarantee a convenient operation and a fast return on your investment: the reliable AC-thrusters makes the vessel excellent to maneuvre, and the flush outer hull and surface treatment eases daily maintenance and cleaning. Submerging and surfacing only takes a minimum amount of time, thanks to the ballasting system.
The electrical system is a standard 400/230 VAC 50 Hz or 380/220 VAC 60 Hz, guaranteeing that economical electric spares will be available anywhere. And as the battery capacity is 3 times that of Mark III all daylight time can be used for diving, with ample reserve!
The Mark V submarine series has three hull sizes available for 35, 50 or 65 passengers to suit different diving operations and below are the model details:
|Length o.a. [m]||21.0||17.4||13.8|
|Weight in air [tons]||130||90||65|
