Yellow Submarine

The lowdown: If the 250-footer isn’t impressive enough for the superyacht set, how about the ability to go 1,650 feet below the surface? Triton Submarines in Vero Beach is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of personal submersibles, especially ones designed exclusively for “yacht-based deployment.”

The details: Triton has introduced its 1650/3 LP, billed as the world’s lightest personal submarine (at 8,800 pounds and less than 6 feet tall). It carries a pilot and two passengers and features Triton’s trademark acrylic sphere, which juts from the top and bottom of the vehicle, giving passengers a sweeping view. No need to cut an underwater adventure short—the 1650/3 LP can stay submerged for up to 12 hours. To give owners the most from their water toy, the price tag includes training for the owner and yacht crew. Crew members also learn how to coordinate dive excursions so budding Cousteaus can explore ocean depths. Cabins are climate- and temperature-controlled, and an integrated sound system can provide the perfect soundtrack. For those who want their submarine to be as comfortable as their boat, Triton is looking to offer luxury interiors. For a really one-of-a-kind vehicle, exteriors may be customized; already, one owner has ordered one in camouflage, Triton says.

Up close: The Triton 1650/3 LP will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Nov. 3–7 at the Broward County Convention Center.
The price: Anyone with $3.3 million can now reach new lows.
