Dive Deep In Richard Branson’s Underwater Airplane

Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition isn’t just known for its planes in the sky, but also this peculiar underwater aircraft. The Necker Nymph is described as a three-person aero-submarine that uses hydrodynamic forces to ‘fly’ through in the ocean like a plane would. It can travel as deep as 30 meters below the surface.

The high-tech vehicle was designed and built by renowned engineer, Graham Hawkes. It’s been reported that the Necker Nymph is a world-first of its kind, and Richard Branson is the only one to own it. However, it can be hired at a weekly rate of $25,000 when guests stay at the Virgin Limited Edition Necker Belle private holiday resort.
