Sir Richard
Branson is at it again – whether it’s luxurious trips
to outer space or stylish underwater adventuring, the Virgin Mobile
tycoon wants to be the first to market it. Virgin
Limited Edition
announced today it will be going underwater
with its new Necker Nymph aero submarine. The Necker Nymph a DeepFlight
three-person aero submarine. Graham Hawkes of Hawkes Ocean Technologies,
engineer and designer behind the Necker Nymph, likened this open
cockpit winged sub to an underwater aircraft.

Virgin’s
new Nymph sub will fit nicely into the company’s other luxuriously
designed Necker-named properties and transports
like the Necker
Belle – a 105 foot catamaran – and Necker Island. Sir
Richard plans to lend the Nymph out to visitors of his high-class
hideaway, Necker Island. The Necker Nymph can glide through the
ocean doing full 360 degree turns while carrying its pilot and two
visitors on a two-hour trip.
