This Incredible $5.5 Million Private Submarine Can Dive A Mile Deep Underwater

If scuba diving is too mainstream for you, take a look at the new two-passenger Triton 6600/2 submarine. This submarine weighs a mere 250 kg which, if you can believe it, makes this underwater beast lighter than most Harley Davidson bikes. It also has the ability to dive up to 6600 feet (over a mile), and it is capable of zipping through the waters at a maximum speed of 3 knots.

The transparent hull is made of polymethyl methacrylate and it is the thickest ever made, resulting in the world’s deepest diving sub with a transparent hull.

To light up your way during your dive, this sub comes standard with six 20,000-lumen lights.

The Triton 6600/2 has several power sources, two of them being a 24 V battery (6 kWh) and a 120 V battery (25 kWh). A PLC-base touch screen allows users to control the underwater vessel and there is enough oxygen for 12 hours in the main oxygen tank.

Available at a $5.5 million starting price, the Triton 6600/2 sounds like a great investment for those who can’t get enough of the peaceful and beautiful underwater scenery.
