Diving Deep with the Triton 6600/2 Submarine

The $5.5 million sub for your inner James Cameron or if you just yearn for the life aquatic.

Feb 24, 2016 | By null

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.
