She is equipped with enough engine power to reach a maximum of 17 knots with a capacity for 32 people, including crew and scientists.
The stunning expedition and research vessel is equipped with a 9 metre long submarine, allowing six people to dive up to 165 metres deep. The sub was built at an Italian Shipyard in Trieste and is kept aboard the vessel in a 150 metre square hangar. The research sub can reach a surface speed of 8kts and a submerged speed of 6kts and is powered by electric propulsion.
NAIA’s dedicated owners deck covers 120 square metres and has had a house built in one of the upper decks.
