With the Monaco Yacht Show unveiling countless new superyachts this month, one showstopper will return with a splash after it was revealed last year. U-Boat Worx submarine concept is breathtaking, and new photos show off its stunning interiors.
The 123-foot Nautilus mixes a private yacht and a fully functional submarine with a 656-foot depth rating and a surface and underwater speed of 10 knots for up to 3,200 nautical miles. The Nautilus can also stay submerged for up to 18 hours with ten guests and includes a pressure-resistant electric tender stowed under the exterior aft deck.
Its opulent features include a large sundeck with a saltwater pool, elegant bar, and lounge area, which completely retracts before it goes below the surface. The outrageous interior includes a large dining room and lounge surrounded by massive windows, a master stateroom, four guest rooms, a full galley, and enough space to accommodate seven crew.
Considered more of a submersible superyacht than your average tight-spaced submarine, it offers a unique air filtration system for supreme comfort and the ultimate viewing opportunities of the marine life around you. With a detailed focus on luxury, in partnership with the talented yacht designers at Officina Armare, the experience of being on board the submarine will truly be cutting-edge.
The Mezzanine Observation Lounge on the Nautilus offers panoramic views of the surrounding waters, providing guests with dramatic up-close views of the marine life around them. The lounge opens up a different perspective than the traditional deck level and is accessed from the grand staircase.
According to design firm Officina Armare, “The Foredeck Lounge is dark enough to keep the main focus on the underwater and at the same time lively and warm enough to provide comfort at home on land despite the cold water surrounding it. One of the main inspirations for that space was the chalets from the Alps, designed to offer cozy spaces during the snowy cold winters. Comfortable low-profile seating is preferred to provide a good view for observation.”
The designer adds, “The interior concept mainly focuses on keeping passengers connected to the land underwater by the design, use of materials, and layout as the submarine is engineered to spend quite a long time underwater.”
The Maindeck Sunken Lounge is designed lower than the main deck level and provides better visibility to the outside with custom-designed furniture. Lounge mattresses are placed on the window structure to create a more functional space that could be used for reading. There is a pop-up TV screen incorporated between the windows. In the observation mode, the screen is hidden, and the lights are synchronized with the underwater life.

When I reach Galaha in Sri Lanka’s central highlands, the sun is high in the sky and the streets are clouded with dust. Tuk-tuks rattle around women in red saris flecked with gold, narrowly missing the one-eyed dog sleeping in the road. Amid the honking and coconut selling, I hear a familiar sound — Beethoven’s Für Elise — moving closer, crackling from a tuk-tuk selling fish buns, and bringing with it the smell of freshly baked bread.
The 25th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is scheduled for October 16-20 this year in Samarkand. For the first time in history, Uzbekistan will host this important biennial gathering of member states and affiliate members of UNWTO.
“When I was small, it was all very traditional,” muses 69-year-old Prapapan Sritrai as she shows me around her workspace, where huge vats of bubbling, inky-blue liquid are being stirred by her husband. Auntie Ngeam, as she’s known locally, is one of a third generation of indigo artisans in a family descended from the Phuan, a people known for their handwoven fabrics. A sizeable Phuan community, originally from Laos, settled in Phrae, in northern Thailand, after being displaced from their homeland when the borders of Siam were expanded in the late 19th century, bringing their indigo craftsmanship with them. Auntie Ngeam’s Tardis-like indigo studio is located down a slim alley in Ban Thung Hong, a village on the outskirts of Phrae, almost equidistant between Chiang Mai and the Laos border. Here, where the green rolling hills are dissected by the Yom River and its tributaries, the acanthus and indigofera tinctoria plants central to indigo production flourish. Indigo — and, specifically, the production of dark-blue mo hom shirts, a common uniform for rural and agricultural workers in Thailand — became a key industry in Phrae after the demise of the local teak industry following the Second World War.
With political turmoil worldwide, divided beliefs, and mandates facing ordinary citizens, the idea of creating your own country might seem like a dream. But with micronations launching around the world, this dream has become a reality despite not being recognized by governments.
I’m trying to master the downward dog when a flamingo trots past. The bird stands on the edge of my mat as I eye it from my upside down position. Puffing up its fuchsia feathers, it bends over effortlessly, its beak touching the ground, as if to prove its superior flexibility. Welcome to yoga, Bahamas-style.
Travelers to Singapore’s Changi Airport soon won’t need to show their passports to leave the country as the popular airport looks to implement biometrics throughout the immigration and boarding process.
Stretching along an island in the St Lawrence River, Montréal has a complicated soul thanks to its blend of French and English heritage. You can explore this dichotomy and much more – art, music, dining – in its diverse neighborhoods.
Mallorca is a great place to visit for its beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, rich history and culture, excellent food, and variety of activities. It is a popular destination for all ages and interests, and there is something for everyone in Mallorca.
One of the fruits of getting on a train is that it makes me want to chat. So instead of gazing at Kent as we proceed to Paris from London, I talk to my neighbour. Martha grew up in San Francisco, studied in Oregon, and puts syrup on everything. When we part ways on the concourse of Gare du Nord – she to lunch with a friend from Wisconsin, me to amble around before continuing towards Turkey – she says the best things about the US are Taylor Swift and meatloaf. It’s good to talk.
