Surface yachts are passé, or will be as soon as a few celebrities start to show up on board submarines, instead. Not only do they enable their passengers to avoid the paparazzi, they offer the chance to travel in style as never before. Divester uncovered two of the most luxurious submarines in the world, the Seattle 1000 and the Phoenix 1000.
The Seattle is 118 feet of climate-controlled luxury and, for the price of $20 million, the buyer can even select the interior colors and help design the layout of staterooms and dining areas. Apparently, the manufacturer suggests using the sub as an aquatic version of a train, ferrying passengers across the Atlantic - with a nightly price tag of $2,500 per person.
The Phoenix (pictured) has not yet been built, still waiting for someone with $78 million to come along, but it would be the single largest, most luxurious sub ever built upon completion. Designed to be 213 feet long, with over 5,000 square feet of interior space, the space can be used in almost any way. The sub is equipped with a mini sub, for excursions at depth or bringing people to and from the ship.
