1 LUXURY SUBMARINE on Mon Sep 13, 2010 9:26 pm
If you have a limousine, a jet place and a yacht then the only next step for you is a personal submarine. This isn’t an idea to be scoffed at anymore, because the Phoenix 1000 is just that. It is a large affair with an interior area of more than 5000 square feet. The significant volume, coupled with very large acrylic view ports, and the potential for relatively large open spaces, results in a vehicle as luxurious as the finest of motor yachts. Although, I personally think a submarine is way cooler than any yacht can ever be, because yachts are so passe and very common. Also, the submarine gives you a chance to explore the depths of the ocean, the life that exists under the sea. Who knows, you might come across Spongebob or Ariel. On a more serious note, Phoenix is capable of making trans-Atlantic crossings at 16 knots yet can dive along the route and explore the continental margins of some of the most fascinating waters of the world. And if the surface of the water gets a bit too choppy, don’t worry because the submarine can submerge into a perfectly smooth and quiet environment. I guess this puts an end to sea sickness.
The Phoenix comes at an estimated price of $78 million. To own one, you are going to have to be super rich, but that was always a given. It looks so cool and Sci-Fi.
