Richie Kohler for “The mystery of Britannic” project

Recently we’ve been working on the finishing touches on the canvas of the “The mystery of Britannic” project. As we’ve mentioned before, research vessel U-Boat Navigator with her crew embarked on another month-long expedition to the Kea Channel, the place where the “Britannic”, a hospital ship of his Majesty met her destiny in 1916. For one month the crew and a team of professional divers were engaged in this extremely engrossing project. Both, Triton 3300/3 and Triton 3300/1 MD were highly involved in the process of filming the conclusive shots.

Launching the Tritons. Timelapse

Here’s another fantastic video made by the BBC reporters Paul Francis and Andrew Bomford, aboard U-Boat Navidator in Greece in June 2016.

Here you can watch the teamwork of our crew while launching the subs. It’s not an easy job – on some days the crew even has to do it several times a day. To ensure the safety of the subs and pilots every step is controlled by the members of the crew. It takes a while to build a great team and we were very lucky to have built it by now aboard our research vessel U-Boat Navigator.

BBC aboard U-Boat Navigator

The representatives of the BBC radio and BBC News have visited U-Boat’s expedition to Britannic 2016 in Greece.

Our pilot Dmitry Tomashov submerged in Triton 3300/3 to show the reporters around one of our favorite wrecks. Navigator’s crew and the technical divers team shared some of their experience, knowledge with the journalists and gave a brief introduction to the diving process.

Expedition to Britannic is at a full swing now, with more details to follow.
