DISCOVER THE BAY LIKE NEVER BEFORE U-Boat Worx was founded in The Netherlands in 2005 with the objective of creating subs with unprecedented “value for money”. Our subs are the most advanced private submarines and have set the standards for 21st century underwater exploration. These personal subs are built in small series at the company`s headquarters in Breda, where hundreds of parts are meticulously put together to provide clients with the safest, most innovative and most luxurious submersibles on the market. U-Boat Worx’ submersibles stand out in terms of their agility, reliability, their spacious and luxurious interior, powerful air conditioning system, relatively compact size, low weight and low lead times. Our highly skilled team is fully dedicated to the task of building these state-of-the-art diving machines and provides full support to its client during the acquisition and construction stages right up to the ownership of their submersible, and comprehensive after-sales service. U-Boat Worx takes great pride in creating these very versatile underwater crafts, which can be used for various purposes. The submersibles can be operated from yachts, at tourist ventures, used for research missions and for private recreation. All models are classed by the esteemed Germanischer Lloyd Classification Society, an authority which oversees the design, construction and stringent testing of every craft in order to achieve the highest possible safety standards for these extraordinary submersibles. The C-Questers are based on the double-hull concept and are available in 2- and 3-person configurations, the C-Quester 2 and the C-Quester 3. The C-Questers are very robust, reliable and efficient designs, affording excellent views and a maximum diving depth of 100 metres. The C-Explorers represent a large family of high-performance subs for 1 to 5 passengers and can be manufactured for various depths ranging from 100 metres up to a staggering 1,000 metres below the ocean`s surface The C-Explorer 5, which is described as “the world’s first subsea limousine”. Can accommodate four passengers, plus a pilot. Its pressurized acrylic-and-steel hull allows it to descend to a maximum depth of 300 meters (1,000 feet), where it can manage a top speed of 3 knots. The C-Explorer 5 can maintain operational autonomy for a claimed eight hours, with the option of upgrading to 16. It can maintain life support for 96 hours. Some optional extras include an external manipulator arm, imaging sonar, LED lights, an HD video camera, and even a tethered remote-operated vehicle for checking out areas that the CE5 itself can’t squeeze into. U-Boat Worx recently received orders for the first C-Explorer 3 submersibles. Works have started on these superyacht toys that can dive up to depths of 300 meters and are characterized by their fully transparent pressure hull that permits the best underwater view possible. C-Explorer 3 represents a unique combination of the reliability and experience of the C-Quester submersible with an economic, modular, and versatile work-platform for research, exploration, scientific and offshore applications. It represents the ultimate submersible in oceanographic activities. With its practical configuration and full 360-degree acrylic pressure hull, this exceptional submersible cruises at 3 knots below the surface offering unparalleled performance. The C-Explorers are easily equipped with additional tools.

TAKE A TOUR RSONAL SUBMARINE FOR THE BAY AND TOURISM


All key rooms take advantage of the lake view with services and washrooms being relegated to the road side of the home. The plan is anchored around a double height living space that is full of natural day-lighting and encourages natural ventilation of the home. The master suite maintains its privacy as well as significant glazing towards the lake by being pulled away from the rest of the program and by using a buffer zone of a cozy reading room.

Mark Berens The Art of SOUTHERN GEORGIAN BAY. take a moment and enjoy...


MEET THE ARTIST MARK BERENS

From an early age, Mark Berens has been immersed in the world of painting, as both of his grandparents were artists. He still recalls fond memories of the oily scent of his Grandmother’s studio space. Berens started experimenting with oils during his first year at OCAD, and instantly found it to be his choice medium for creative expression. Upon graduating in 1999 with an illustration degree, Berens ventured down the road of editorial illustration only to find himself creatively unfulfilled. He longed for the fulfillment of personal expression, which he knew would slowly evaporate if he continued his career in the illustration industry. Berens longed to hold a paintbrush once again. An inspirational trip to Whistler instantly reconnected Berens with the outside world, and an inevitable passion to paint his natural surroundings. He instantly began a new artistic journey - representing landscapes through oil paint. Since this poignant trip, Berens has traveled to many parts of Canada in search of picturesque scenes that would in turn inspire new landscape pieces. The surface quality of his landscapes is thick, creamy, and rich in the palette of nature’s liveliness. Berens is particularly noted for his ability to capture depth and light through textured dabs of a well-calculated colour palette. Upon viewing a Berens Oil, it is almost as if one could reach out and pick up one of his fallen leaves. Through closer inspection, the quality of the paint reveals itself in a somewhat abstract manner, creating a unique bilateral dynamic for viewing. Now showing with galleries all over North America, Mark Berens happily works as a professional artist whose works adorns the walls of many fond admirers.
