“Britannic 2014″ expedition has made lots of great things happen. Fascinating research process, meetings with good friends, talks with interesting people… Our big thank you to everyone for participation. And to “Britannic” as well! Before we come up with the full report on the journey, we publish a brief overview in photos…
While expedition is on the go, we publish promised photos. HMHS Britannic wreck has not changed much since last year, excluding some newly emerged fishing nets. Actually, fishing is prohibited in the area, but currants can easily bring them here anyways.
Our researchers were glad to see the wreck gain. They eagerly examined its external condition and filmed high quality videos, making a good use of new lights, especially developed for underwater filming.
It’s been a bit more than a week since U-Boat Navigator has started the Britannic expedition. The crew is working at the site now, preparing some fine video material. Local weather is a bit ill-tempered at the moment, but we passionately wait once we need and carry on with exciting immersions. In general, everything is working out quiet well, and we’re about to publish new underwater footage soon! Now we are setting forward some photos picturing our trip.
Finishing touches are being put on the threshold of the long-awaited expedition to HMHS Britannic. U-Boat Navigator is going to take a team of researches onto a fascinating trip to Greek coast…
Famous historians and professional divers will join our crew. We’ll be honoured and happy to get their comments, to make our own ones – and all for keeping you informed about the news.
As we have promised, we publish a fragment of the interview with Simon Mills, a famous British maritime historian and Britannic wreck owner, who has recently visited U-Boat Malta.
U-Boat Navigator team is getting ready for the oncoming expedition to the wreck of legendary Britannic. In the meanwhile specialists carefully check their equipment: wet bell, ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle), decompression chamber, cameras and other systems and facilities.
U-Boat Navigator divers also availed the opportunity of examining new outfit and accouterment while striving for the absolute perfection and polishing up their immersion techniques.
Famous British maritime historian, Britannic wreck owner Simon Mills has recently visited U-Boat Malta to talk about his legendary belonging, oncoming filming project and simply life. Interesting topics to discuss and a fine weather day on the island made our meeting unforgettable.
Mr. Mills’ visit to the office gave us a chance to extend the interview we had a couple of months ago. We’ll publish it shortly, along with some great rare pictures of Britannic. Simon generously suggested putting them forward in order to provide our readers with even more entertaining and insightful material.
U-Boat Malta Ltd is getting prepared for documentary project shooting, aiming to tell a great story of the underwater world.
Please, accept our warmest congratulations on the Seafarer’s day!
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) decided to designate June 25th as the International Day of the Seafarer in 2010. It’s now been 4 years since we started looking at this summer day as at the opportunity to praise those brave wonderful people who love sea so much!
Our great thanks to seafarers for their contribution!
U-Boat Navigator crew is looking forward to meeting the Britannic again later on this year. Meanwhile, we’ve prepared a video insight into our last year journey to the famous wreck.
