The Newest Gift Idea


Can’t think of what to get that person who has everything?  Consider a personal submarine.

Triton Submarines makes two and three passenger “yacht based submersiles.”  Although regularly used by researchers and tour companies, the majority of those sold are purely for fun.  The submarines are made for deployment on mega-yachts and allow users to dive deep into the ocean in perfect air-conditioned comfort and safety.

The best seller is the entry level 1000/2, which can take two passengers 1,000 feet deep.  For only $2.2 million, order one for that special someone today.

See Larry Olmsted, Gift for the Person Who Has Everything? A Personal Submarine, Forbes, Nov. 24, 2013.

Special thanks to David S. Luber (Florida Probate Attorney) for bringing this article to my attention.
