RVs, motorcycles, private jets and off-road vehicles aren’t the only things to have started selling like hotcakes since the start of pandemic. Apparently, rich people also can’t get enough personal submarines. Before you finish grappling with that factoid let me introduce you to one of the latest luxury subs dropping into the water. The Triton 660/9 AVA is basically a living room/lounge that you can take 660 feet underwater.
Triton launched in Florida in 2007 and it has some pretty sweet machinery. Its DSV Limiting Factor, holds the record for the deepest manned descent, reaching 35,843 feet down in the Challenger Deep. That sub, normally called the 36000/2 Full Ocean Depth, can be yours for the low price of $48 million and is certified to dive anywhere, no matter how deep. But if you want your submersible to be a party vessel, there’s the 660/9 AVA.
