If diving beneath the waves in search of life below the ocean’s surface is a favorite pastime of yours but feel that scuba diving is a bit antiquated and pedestrian, there’s the C-Researcher 3-1100 from U-Boat Worx. Yes – in case you were wondering – it’s a personal submarine. So what? The 1% need a little R&R from time to time too.
With this particular model, you and two passengers can dive anywhere in the world up to 1,100 meters (3,600 feet) deep for as much as 18 hours at a time. Outfitted for both private enjoyment and exploration alike, the C-Researcher can find a home in both Beverly Hills and your regional research institute and also comes equipped with several options such as manipulator arms and underwater cameras to help document your findings or open that newly discovered treasure chest. In addition, its spacious acrylic sphere allows for an uninterrupted view of the deep blue sea from beneath the surface, which sounds either highly intriguing or absolutely terrifying depending on who’s riding shotgun in this nifty aquatic watercraft.
