The pressure hull is held encased in a steel framework and can be obtained in any colour that the client may desire though yellow, orange and red have proven to be the favourites of many.

Besides the technical modifications done to ensure the best possible fit with each yacht’s launch and recovery system the C-Explorer 5 can be outfitted with champagne coolers, stereo system, beds and a host of other amenities.
