Spanning across a set of several yacht-submarine hybrid models and one very awesome ‘floating habitat’, Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts are coming up with a new conception of aquatic comfort that promises great things for the future. These yachts were made to fit the increasing desire and demand for privacy and personalization – because what else is more luxurious than staking out your own watery domain both over and under sea in one of these beauties? We of course love these beauties, as you can see from our coverage ofluxury submarines.
The models range from the 72 meter M2 Yacht to the 225-283 meter (yes, that is seriously how big the company says it is) M7 Yacht, each with built according to U.S. Navy Subsafe safety standards, featuring amenities and traits that also appear on other surface yachts of equal size. Of course, the exterior and interior designs are completely up to the owner’s preferences.
But we should probably move on to the main dish – the Kokomo Ailand. This bespoke state-of-the-art megayacht just stokes up a person’s inner Poseidon or James Bond villain (that’s exactly what the Migaloo website references) as it slowly drifts across the water’s surface with its 117 meter long body. Being decked out with a jungle deck, pool, waterfall, palm, trees and vertical gardens is only the cherry on top to the whole package. For even more fun, check out the shark feeding elevator. Yep, you heard that right. Who needs the pool bar or outdoor cinema when you can have that for entertainment.
Migaloo was founded by professionals with several years’ experience in the industry, and boy do they know exactly what fuels any yacht-owner’s innermost desires. For more information, you can check out their website over at http://www.migaloo-submarines.com/.
With its thick transparent acrylic hull, the Triton 6600/2 Submarine is the perfect fit for any soul (or two, the maximum seating capacity) with a penchant for curiosity about the hidden gems of the sea. It reaches 6,600 feet down, more than a mile in fact (roughly 2 kilometers), and has a maximum dive time of 10 hours. That’s sure to give you quite enough time to seek out coral reefs or discover Atlantis (ok maybe not), especially with its high output LED lights in tow. For safety, reserve oxygen lasts for 96 hours in case of any emergencies underwater.
On the company’s side, Triton subs have passed the rigorous standards of the American Bureau of Shipping. Among the ABS standards, only submarines with perfect safety records can ever be classified by them. The team at Triton also provides a three-step training program with the purchase of any sub, starting from familiarization with the parts and systems and ending with dive-training in the ocean itself. When you deploy a Triton sub off a Yacht, Triton also has that covered. They’ll provide extensive documentation set on the main questions involved in deployment, and an operation specialist will be available 24/7 to assist owners or crew with issues.
All of the above makes the Triton 6600/2 the vehicle for your undersea explorations. For more information you can head down to the site itself over here.
Bored of making out on a plane at 35,000 feet? Adventurous couples who’ve already inducted themselves into the Mile High Club can now take their love to a new level, with the launch of a luxury submarine that plumbs the depths of the ocean and comes with soundproof rooms and a private chef.
The underwater hotel called “Lovers Deep” can be moored near the coastal reef off the coast of St. Lucia or near a sunken battleship in the Red Sea.
But love at the bottom of the ocean doesn’t come cheap. You’ll need to cough up £175,000 per night in order to board the submarine vessel.
Guests get a captain, a private chef and butler, speedboat transfers and optional add-ons that include helicopter transfers, beach landing, two-person shower, and champagne-soaked breakfast.
Take a look at the luxury submarine hotel launched by British travel outfit Oliver’s Travels as part of their Mile Low Club.
Richard Branson unveiled plans Tuesday to pilot a “flying” mini-submarine down to the furthest depths of the oceans, in his latest record-breaking adventure.
The Virgin Oceanic craft will try to reach the deepest points in each of the world’s five oceans, starting with the deepest of them all, in the western Pacific later this year.
“With space long ago reached by man, and commercial spaceflight tantalizingly close, the last great challenge for humans is to reach and explore the depths of our planet’s oceans,” said Branson. Continue reading →
U.S. Submarines, has developed a 2-person model submarine called the Triton 1000.
It is always great to own a yacht and have those parties by the deck. However, after a while, you may need something more exciting : the small submersible is lightweight and engineered specifically for deployment from medium-to-large yachts.
With an overall height of 1.85 meters and an overall length of only 3.2 meters the Triton fits on many mid-level boat decks and at 3.3 tons it can be launched using existing equipment from most yachts (and if you still donâ€™t own a yacht, you can attach the sub behind a truck or a SUV).
Its design provides for excellent visibility and high levels of comfort, while luxury leather seating and full air conditioning offer the pilot as much comfort as possible in such a small space.
The operations are easy : the unitâ€™s controls include intuitive joystick controls and touch screen monitors. In addition, U.S. Submarines provide piloting and maintenance training to the owner or crew with no additional cost, so you don’t kill yourself and make manufacturer U.S. Submarines look bad.
Triton pricing begins at $1.69 million and if you are wealthy enough, you can also have a look at some of the most luxurious private submarines you could own.

For the first time ever, you can own your very own luxury submarine. The Phoenix 1000 makes underwater travel for adventure-seeking billionaires a reality.Phoenix 1000 is the biggest and luxurious private submarine ever designed.

The luxury amenities include Jacuzzis, gyms, wine cellars and the clients even have the option of going for a basketball court. The uppermost level of the vessel is the flying bridge. This area is similar to its equivalent area on most yachts, with the exception of the fact that the materials selected can stand immersion.
The utmost depth is reached 305 meters but if you want to go down even more, the integrated docking mini-sub can take 8 passengers to an extreme 610 metres below the surface. Additionally, in the unlikely event of an emergency at depth, the minisub could be used to take passengers and crew to the surface.
The estimated price of the Phoenix is $78 million and this luxurious undersea vehicle takes about three years to build.
