The Ultimate Superyacht Submarine

The Ultimate Superyacht Submarine

Drawing inspiration from every traveller’s guidebook – Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, – the Austrian-based Migaloo Submarines is going to design, engineer, and build a private submersible yacht. The concept exhibits austere architecture and powerful performance capabilities. The yacht takes the concept of privacy to a new level, as it will be able to remain submerged both at anchor and when cruising between destinations.

An offshoot of the design firm Motion Code: Migaloo will work with clients to customize the designs to accommodate any size specifications or different configurations based on the four primary models currently offered. This has never before been done for submarine vessels available for private buyers, and is surely going to attract a host of rich buyers, who want their own nautical toy.

The M5 and M6 also have an outdoor pool and hot tub (accessible when surfaced), a helipad, and a wet garage that can fit two 36-foot mini submarines for smaller-scale exploration.
