    I would like a variety of tourist subs for my new location on the northern Oregon coast USA.

    1. Mike Garner


      Sorry for the late reply. Our web site got hacked and we just got back on line. May I ask what passenger capacity, depth rating, new or used units are of interest?



    2. Mike Garner

      Russ, I have a friend who lives up there Sasquamish, beautiful place. There are some considerations to be taken into account when operating in US, or US territories. 1, The vessel must be US flagged. 2, The vessel must be built in US, 3, The crew must be US citizens, in accordance with the Jones Act. 4, The design will need to be ABS & USCG approved. 5, The cost of complying with the aforementioned will be higher than for the same sub built in some other countries. That said, we can accommodate you. First question is; What size (passenger capacity) are you looking for? 2, What depth rating? 3, New or used sub? 4, Do you have a dive site in mind? 5, What will the mean operating depth be? 6, How many passengers per day to you hope to carry? 7, What are the logistics of the site? IE range from shore staging point to dive site? There are many other questions also, which is why we offer a site evaluation survey as an initial package & later if you place an order, a site set up assistance package as options. You can contact me via mike@sde-asia.com or msubby@gmail.com with your reply. If you feel you wish to continue, we can take it from there. Looking forward to hearing from you. All the best. Mike
