New is the private mini submersible that can carry up to five people depending on the size. However, you do not have to go deep to explore the magical underwater world and for some there is barrier to try out a submersible experience. The Scyllias, the result of this graduation project, is the answer to still have an amazing immersive underwater experience but in an approachable way. This master thesis shows the process and results of designing the Scyllias. The process is divided in three phases: the analysis phase, the ideation and conceptualisation phase and the elaboration and embodiment phase. The analysis phase the background of the context and the problem are being examined. This was done by means of interviews, literature study and internet research. The conclusion of this phase resulted in the design vision with design goal "Design of a luxurious semi-submersible that provides an easy accessible and immersive underwater experience." In the ideation and conceptualisation phase ideas for solutions to the problem were generated. First the problem of the transformation, submerging from above to below the water surface, was tackled. When this was done ideas for the inside of the pod were generated. Phase three was the elaboration and embodiment phase. The result is a detailed concept as a design proposal. The design is not optimized and many things are still to be developed. The dimensioning of the pod was tested by means of a mock up. The conclusion is that the Scyllias is a realistic solution to the design goal. Above the water the design of the Scyllias, both technical as aesthetically, meet the requirement of being conspicuous. The pod is easy accessible and when submerged will give the user a truly unique immersive underwater experience.
