Le Redoutable - Review

A part of the French Nationale, French Submarine Redoutable was the lead boat of the ballistic missile submarines category. It was commissioned in the year 1971 on 1st of December. It had a duty history of 20 years and is known for 90,000 hours of diving. The most fascinating fact is that it covered roughly a distance which is equivalent to the entire radius of 32 kilometres around the earth. After being decommissioned in the year 1991, it was removed from water and subsequently converted into an exhibit, which attracts various tourists from around the area. As an enthusiast of the defence forces or somebody who’s particularly interested in the naval activities, it is indeed a great place to visit.

Le Redoutable, Cherbourg Reviews

  • Perhaps there could have been pick-up of the reactor rather than a large empty section. Otherwise great!

  • Interesting to see and here about the French nuclear submarine program. Included audio guide helps.

  • Le Redoutable had a 20-year duty history, with 51 patrols of 70 days each, totalling an estimated 90,000 hours of diving and 1.27 million kilometres (790,000 mi) of distance, the equivalent of travelling 32 times around the Earth. The boat was decommissioned in 1991. In 2000, the boat was removed from the water and placed in a purpose-built 136 metres (446 ft) dry dock, and over two years was made into an exhibit. This was a monumental task, the biggest portion of which was removing the nuclear reactor and replacing the midsection with an empty steel tube. In 2002, the boat opened as a museum ship at the Cité de la Mer naval museum in Cherbourg-Octeville, France, being now the largest submarine open to the public and the only nearly-complete ballistic missile submarine hull open to the public — although several museums display small portions, such as sails and/or parts of rudders from such submarines. Special dinner events for organizations aboard this boat's interior spaces are offered by Cité de la Mer

  • My daughter had a ball would have liked many some actors playing parts on the submarine and maybe a bit longer inside it...but all in all not a bad wee day out

  • Very streamlined visit where you have to follow a set path and you have to use an audio guide (available in the top 5-6 languages). Informative and fun, but it would be great to be allowed to visit more of the boat freely. Takes 45 minutes to visit.
