A yacht may be the ultimate status symbol, but take that luxury status to new depths with a two-man submarine.
The Dragon by DeepFlight can be piloted with minimal training and no license. Imagine dropping to 400 feet underwater and taking in amazing reefs, sea life, shipwrecks and more. The max speed is only 4 knots (4.6 mph), but with anything faster you wouldn’t be able to view the sea life.
Using a lithium battery, the sub lasts five to eight hours underwater on one charge. Cost includes shipping, training and installation. $1.5-million
