Private submarines, the ultimate luxury to live up to

Submarines are the last expression of ostentation among billionaires, who smile at the most luxurious ports comparing the sizes of their ships.

The great fortunes invest in this type of boats because it offers them adventure and, above all, the privacy that they find almost impossible to obtain elsewhere; but also because it is difficult that you can neglect the value of this type of floating complexes. Most of the owners of this type of boats prefers to buy a conventional superyacht.

Thinking about a private submarine, is unbelievable for most people, could be an extravagance typical of science fiction movies. This niche market was prepared by the Austrian design, engineering and construction company of super yachts Motion Code, which created its exclusive line of Migaloo private submarines, offering maximum luxury, the most advanced technology and great privacy.

But submarines that have swimming pools, cinemas, gyms, VIP cabins and glazed windows to contemplate the depths of the ocean, are an attractive possibility for a few.

The Migaloo M7

It has characteristics that attract the attention of the nautical industry. The cabin is located in the area of ​​the bow of the ship and occupies 3 levels. The superior contemplates an exclusive terrace that unfolds from a retractable roof, which offers a private deck. Looking to the center of the ship, the deck offers a helipad, in addition to a solarium with folding roofs and an unpublished 8-meter long pool, which rises to the surface level when the submarine is submerged. But if this were not enough, the two-level beach club has a covered area, and the walls unfold over the sea, to allow direct access to the ocean.

Apart from the master suite, this submarine has eight VIP cabins for guests and independent parts for a large crew. They include cabins, kitchen, machine room, navigation rooms for the captain, gym for the crew and laundry. It also has movie theaters, spa gym with hot tubs, various living rooms and dining rooms with bar. Due to its powerful lighting system installed in the windows of the ship, you can appreciate the landscape of the depths, having a capacity of descent of up to 240 meters.

It reaches 40 knots of maximum speed on the waterline and 20 knots once submerged. This makes it the best luxury superyacht with the exclusivity of being submersible. The last and most exclusive way to enjoy the oceans. And all from about 800 million dollars, million up, million down.

The submarine industry is a growing industry, which increasingly offers more products. Nowadays you don’t have to think of them as claustrophobic devices. They have changed a lot since Dutch Cornelius Jacobszoon Drebbel built the first submarine between 1620 and 1624.

Companies like U.S. Submarines, Ocean Submarine and Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts have designed civil toys like the M7 of Migaloo that we have described before, a 225 to 283 length submersible.

The M7 is the most extreme example, and surely the most expensive one you can buy. Nobody knows yet who has been able to buy it but in the ocean there are smaller private submarines that have been produced by manufacturers such as Triton Submarines (a subsidiary of U.S. Submarines), U-Boat Worx and Seamagine Hydrospace, among others. They cost around three million euros and are easier to handle.

But one of the latest copies that has reached the market is the one that Triton Submarines and Aston Martin, the Neptune Project, have jointly devised.

Both firms, which are luxury firms in both sectors, started this joint venture in 2017. As announced, this submarine must be safe, reliable and offer its passengers 360º visibility.

Technical specifications

It can be submerged to depths of 500 meters with a capacity for two passengers and one pilot. Get a speed of up to 5 knots (9 km/h). They have paid as much attention to the hydrodynamics of the lower part as to the visible surfaces. According to the data that the firm Gaydon revealed , this submarine can be submerged to a depth of 500 meters. Besides  it can reach a speed of five knots, about 9.3 km / h. The mains areas in whic Aston Martin has contributed the most has been in the aesthetic section. The brand admits that the biggest challenge in this project were the interiors. Before installing the doors, they installed all interior elements in an open cabin. For this reason everything inside  must enter through the top hatch and assemble into the hull sphere.
