Triton 1000 Personal Submarine

by Reverend_Danger   August 21, 2008 at 3:48PM  |  Views: 315

In my professional aquanautical opinion, it is fully worth the $1.69 million (depending on options) price tag.  It seats 3, dives to almost 1000 feet, and looks like something the Jetsons would take to the bottom of the sea.  More details and bigger pics after the jump.

Triton 1000 is the newest (and they say best) sub from luxury submarine makers (those exist?!) U.S. Submarines.  They make submersible vehicles marketed to the super rich who're looking to spice up that yacht party or to outshine the Jones' comparatively pedestrian, above-water dinghies. 

Here's the pics via bornrich.com and stats via the website.
