Bored With Your Megayacht? Add a Cruise-Liner Personal Submarine.
If that doesn't please your guests, we give up
We’ve already told you about the very Zissou-esque two-man sub that lets you go 6,600 into the deep blue to explore at a cool 3.5 mph.
Now the underwater pioneers at Florida-based Triton Submarines are turning their eye towards the leisure-minded set, and have built a 12.5-foot-long monster of a sub that can accommodate seven people. Because leisure = party.
Capable of reaching depths of 1,000 feet, the Triton 1000/7 cruise-liner sub is “designed for operations from cruise-liners and megayachts” and can hold up to 2,220 pounds, hit a maximum speed of 3.5 knots and stay submerged for 18 hours with a full battery. So it’s not built for the level of exploration the two-man sub can handle, but it’ll still make a splash.

Equipped with A/C and a humidity control system to make the cabin as comfortable as possible, the eight-foot-diameter sphere at the front of the sub provides stunning panoramic views.
To show off your pilot skills, get $4.9 million handy, hit up Triton, and prepare to wait two years.
If you need something to tide you over, there’s this video of two smaller subs diving in tandem:
