World’s Most Luxurious Underwater Vehicle

Personal submarines have generally been no-frills vessels with handmade controls, hard seats, and about as much luxury as a Humvee. That should change within a year as British carmaker Aston Martin announced plans to partner with Triton Submarines to build the world’s most luxurious personal submarine.
The announcement was made at a press conference in Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum overlooking dozens of superyachts at the Monaco Yacht Show. “Project Neptune” is almost certain to star in a James Bond movie someday. But for now, Aston Martin and Triton are focusing on how to turn a safe but utilitarian vessel into the most luxurious underwater vehicle the world has ever seen.
The initial drawings of Project Neptune show a sleeker-looking submarine with blue and gray colors that looks more like an Aston Martin sports car than the bright yellow generally found on Triton submarines. Details about the new sub are scarce – but Triton’s existing three-person submarine can stay under water for up to 12 hours and reach a depth of 3,300ft (1,000m). It also comes with air conditioning and humidity controls to make deep-sea diving a little more comfortable.The submarine is expected to have a roughly $4 million price tag, plus options. The new partners said Project Neptune is now underway and will be ready for next year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
