Diving Our Seas

Global Oceanic Designs recognizes the enormous opportunities found below the surface of the world’s oceans, lakes and rivers. Although modern submarines have existed for decades, their full potential has never been realized in industries such as transportation, shipping, research, exploration or mining. The greatest of these areas is anticipated to be tourism and recreation.

The tourism market for submarines includes a huge spread of applications ranging from private craft proudly displayed on the back of mega yachts making the annual “Milk Run” to the large, commercial submersibles currently pioneering shallow underwater tours in select locations. Global’s vision of major cities underwater demands a suitable transportation infrastructure to satisfy the demands of its residents to see the ocean. A period of mass proliferation of underwater technologies will improve submarines similar to the way that automobiles developed on land.

Global submarines showcase the Bi- and Tri-Pyramidal Structural Hulls to rewrite the rule book on the submarine industry. No longer will spherical, specialty parts distort the view for submariners or increase the costs of a submersible research vessel for a struggling scientific group that could be on the verge of its first paradigm-shattering discovery.

Imagine the world’s largest, most luxurious cruise ship on the planet as a submarine leaving port. Its passengers enjoy the traditional glass of champagne as it pulls away from the dock and powers through the muddy coastal scene. Once it reaches crystal-clear waters, the captain calls each passenger’s attention to the completely transparent walls of the ballroom to watch the primary ballasts fill. The world’s finest cruise ship descends to the natural beauty below for a several-hour tour of the reef. Its massive lighting systems shine through the flat walls to illuminate the depths until the couples eventually retire to their respective suites.

The reality made possible by these Structural Designs represents the opportunity for exponential growth for the entire world. From the added resources being extracted under the water to increased tourism traffic, the submarines created from Bi- and Tri-Pyramidal Structural Hulls will usher in a new era of abundance by opening up travel in the 70% of this planet that remains foreign its people.

Quest For Discovery

Crystal Quest IV

Global Oceanic Designs is proud to introduce its first fully-operational, Bi-Pyramidal Submarine: the revolutionary Crystal Quest IV.

Crystal Quest IV is the first in Global Oceanic’s ‘Adventure Line’ of trailer-able recreational or research submarines. With a maximum working depth of 1200 feet, a carrying capacity of up to 4 passengers, a mission time of 3 hours and 360 degree lighting and visibility, the Crystal Quest IV represents the premier gateway to almost anywhere in the subsurface world.

The versatility represented in Crystal Quest IV is truly impressive. It is designed to be moved over land on a trailer to allow deployment in previously-unexplored bodies of water. A 360 degree flood light system allows passengers to marvel at all the marine life attracted by light at depths the sun ordinarily never reaches. By utilizing only crystal-clear, flat hull materials, filming and photography from the interior of the submarine will show the splendor of marine life with almost no distortion.

The innovative ballast system allows for stable maneuvering from any orientation including upside down while maintaining multiple redundant safety systems. Additionally, the ability to add optional packages such as manipulator arms to the exterior of the submarine can turn this exploration vessel into a work vessel for research, salvage, or mining operations.

With the very notable exceptions of its hull and ballast system, all of Crystal Quest IV’s major components such as motors, controls, lights, life support and power systems are readily-available and industry-proven “off the shelf” systems for ease in reproduction.

For everyone that has ever dreamed of the sea, the gateway to the ocean depths is here. The Crystal Quest IV is equipped with all the tools needed to allow submariners to explore more of the depths than any time in human history and show everyone a whole new world.
