The international experts at the Red Dot Design Award: who are also celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, assessed each of the 4,928 entries from 56 countries but the C-Explorer 3 from U-Boat Worx succeeded in convincing the jury members, that the submersible was the most deserving winner.
The C-Explorer 3 is an ultra-modern three-person submersible that can dive to depths of up to 300m. Built to explore the deep sea in air-conditioned comfort, it allows adventurous types to explore hidden shipwrecks, search for new species or simply enjoy breath-taking marine environments.

Bert Houtman, founder and chairman of U-Boat Worx commented, “Receiving the Red Dot Award is a crowning achievement. It shows that our sub owners are in the most capable hands. Not only will they be the first to explore unseen sites with the most capable submersible ever built, but they are also the first to explore the depths of the sea in style.”
