Nautilus Internal Arrangement

Here you are my friends the last working I did for the Nautilus

It is the last, I don’t want to explore this any more, but for fellow readers of Aronnax and Conseil odyssey under the sea’s with the irascible Ned Land and the mysterious Captain Nemo, this is the design I now imagine, as much as I love Harper Goff’s Disney design.


The Nautilus Internal Arrangement

 


The Nautilus is described as having a cylindrical hull 70 meters long and 8 meters in diameter, which I have indicated with this outline, and I could just about fit all the internal settings as described by Jules Verne on one level (the mid section), that could house the cabins of Professor Aronnax (2.5 meters long) which would have room for a simple bunk, writing deck, chair wardrobe and adjoining W.C with show, working back then to Captain Nemo larger room (5 meters long) with a work area and W.C. that could contain a bath.

Moving back we have the salon (10 meters long) with the large portholes for viewing the undersea world, this room doubles for museum, that has art and marine collection of some significant value, next is a dining room (5 meters long) of some elegance and adjoining that is the Library (5 meters long) containing 12,000 books.

We are now at the midpoint of the submarine where you will find a spiral staircase connecting 3 level the size of this central section is not given this area connects to other smaller rooms that house the galley & some storage rooms, where I have placed our other two passengers Ned Land and Conseil as they travel 20,000 leagues under the sea’s, moving further back we have a large W.C or bathhouse for the crew which I have estimated at 12 men can bunk comfortably. Then there is the batteries and engine machine area

I have not have much chance for update, I was away travelling in the north of Spain for a month, but I do have a render / image I was working on before I departed, using Photoshop I wanted to see if I could create an underwater setting with the Nautilus.

Good or bad here is the result, it’s still a work in progress and something I will be returning too once I have worked out a half way decent approach to really make it stand out.

I am happy with this first attempt.

Another Nautilus image.


I redesigned the propeller as I thought after looking at the one I originally made just looked wrong, so I looked around the web and thought the SS Great Britain (1845) propeller is a good place to work from as the novel is based in 1866.
