About SEA BALLOON [Image 4
【concept】 A dream submarine SEA BALLOON that invites you to the underwater world. The underwater world to everyone. SEA BALLOON makes the world under the sea a daily life and enables everyone to go to the world under the sea. The scenery and precious experience seen from a diving sphere that is perfectly integrated with the sea can provide an overwhelming impression to many people. If you dive from a brilliant and light blue world down to a depth of 100m, it is a dark world like the universe. The dynamic and overwhelming world released by the sea and the rare experience of submerging to 100 meters have the potential to change the values of people on the spot. Through SEA BALLOON, we aim to deliver the charm of the underwater world to many people and create a future where it is natural to travel in the sea. [Image 5
【Construction】 SEA BALLOON = “Ship” + “Dive Sphere” SEA BALLOON is the world’s first submarine with a next-generation structure that docks “ships” and “submersible spheres” with a wiring system. The ship is 30m long and 12.4m wide and can accommodate up to 50 people. The diving sphere is about 3m in diameter and can accommodate up to 5 people. The diving sphere is boarded from the 2nd floor of the ship, and the inside of the sphere is maintained at 1 atm to realize the same comfortable environment on the ground. The acrylic sphere used in the main body produces the sense of unity with the sea, without any separation between the sea and the underwater space, using the world’s best special technology. [Image 6
[User experience] Travel in an overwhelming ocean world in a comfortable environment at a depth of 100m Users can fully enjoy the charm of the 100m depth of the sea safely and comfortably by getting into the diving sphere without getting wet from the ship, without special equipment, equipment and technology. At a depth of 100m, the underwater world that has never been experienced as if it were in space opens up in front of us. The dynamic and beautiful nature of the world in the sea brings a moving experience that has never been experienced before. Service that allows you to enjoy the affordable price range and the underwater world as you wish In addition to underwater sightseeing services with diving spheres, underwater weddings and eating and drinking are also possible according to the needs of users. The usage fee is almost the same as a general sea activity, and you can experience it at resort resorts facing the sea in Japan and overseas. [Image 7
【safety】 Diving more than 25,000 times, handled by a US submersible manufacturer with an accident-free world record Designed and developed by SEA BALLOON, Triton Submarines has been diving more than 25,000 times as a commercial submersible for the past 30 years and has an accident-free worldwide record. In order to prevent accidents, the diving sphere is equipped with an obstacle detection system and a system for monitoring temperature, humidity, and oxygen concentration, in order to prevent accidents. In the event of an emergency, the diving sphere itself has a buoyancy of 20 tons, so it rises by separating part of the ballast and sends a rescue signal. Equipped with a safety function that clears the US Coast Guard submarine standards The dive space is also equipped with 4 days of oxygen, carbon dioxide absorbent, water, food, and battery, and has safety features that meet US Coast Guard submarine standards. Even if you cannot ascend from a depth of 100m, you can wait for rescue (because it will be a diving of a preset course, you can specify the location in case of emergency) DNV-GL Classification Association for design and development Comply with the safety standards of Lloyd’s (Home: London, UK). The submersibles certified by the DNV-GL classification society have been accident-free for the past 30 years.
About business [Image 8
【business model】 Develop a lot of SEA BALLOON and create an environment where everyone can easily access the sea around the world We will build a “mechanism = platform” that will let you know as much as possible in order to invite as many people as possible into the mysterious sea, and develop SEA BALLOON’s business through collaboration with partners. A number of SEA BALLOONs have been deployed around the world to create an environment that makes it easy for everyone to access the sea around the world. Create an economic zone in the sea SEA BALLOON brings people into the sea, and the value in the sea becomes obvious. We believe that the ocean will be transformed into tourism resources, which will lead to job creation and tourism revenue in each country, and it will be possible to create an economic zone in the ocean by revitalizing the local economy and developing new businesses. We do not think about our own profits, but develop our business by involving various people. By doing so, SEA BALLOON will become a catalyst, creating synergies and chemical reactions for the people involved, and aiming to create a new economic zone in the sea that was untouched. [Uniqueness] Can be installed in various locations compared to general submersibles Unlike submersibles that require special permission and approval due to the structure integrated with the ship, it is adopted as a ship and has relatively few barriers to introduction, allowing it to be installed in various locations. * Varies by country and region. High entry barrier due to exclusive contract We have an exclusive contract with the submarine maker Triton Submarines, which maintains an environment in which the company’s high technology can be utilized. There are only a few companies in the world that can produce large acrylic spheres used for diving spheres. By entering into business alliance agreements and confidentiality agreements with other manufacturers, including Triton Submarines, we have created a situation where it is impossible to develop similar products (businesses). * SEA BALLOON is our original equipment. High profitability created by SEA BALLOON We plan to provide a sightseeing service for individuals and a charter service for groups. We believe that it will be possible to provide services for up to 26,000 people per unit per year. SEA BALLOON believes that SEA BALLOON’s strength is that various monetizations can be made by providing food and drinks and providing services at sea and underwater. [Image 9
