World’s First Super Submarine for Billionaires Unveiled

Billionaires such as Jeff Bezos and Roman Abramovich cruise the seas in gigantic pleasure boats called superyachts. Now might be the time for them to explore the depths of the ocean in style. An Austrian design company might just have the solution by introducing the world’s first super submarine, described as “the future of yachting.”

Named ‘Migaloo M5,’ this underwater super submarine is 543 feet long. It can accommodate twenty passengers and forty crew members, staying submerged beneath the waves for four weeks, according to Daily Mail.

Comes with a swimming pool, wine cellar, and cinema

Equipped with a swimming pool, wine cellar, and cinema, this luxury submarine comes with a price tag of two billion dollars, making it an exclusive for the world’s wealthiest.

Crafted by the design experts at Migaloo in Graz, Austria, the submarine, diving up to 820 feet (250 meters), is aptly named after the all-white humpback whale.

Christian Gumpold, the CEO, shared with the Times that their target audience includes forward-thinking billionaires, whether or not they’ve sailed on superyachts before, who seek extraordinary levels of exclusivity, safety, adventure, or unique experiences.

Creating something entirely new demands significant financial resources, an extensive timeline for design and construction, and a multitude of decisions, said Gumpold.

Gumpold revealed that Migaloo is currently in talks with ‘interested parties’ for the submarine project. However, he opted not to disclose their names at this time, as reported by Daily Mail.

Helipad for guests arriving by helicopter

Preview images of the future submarine depict a sleek, white craft, a stark contrast to the Royal Navy’s robust Vanguard-class subs.

Similar to conventional submarines, it can navigate both on the water’s surface and plunge underwater when needed.

While still above water, pools on each side of the vessel stretch out, offering a unique experience. Yet, these pools seamlessly retract into the body of the submarine before it descends, according to Daily Mail.

A helipad is included for welcoming guests by helicopter before the submarine begins its descent. The descent process kicks in as substantial onboard storage tanks, known as ballast tanks, fill with water to decrease buoyancy.

Inside, the lavish interior boasts a predominance of gold and white leather. It’s furnished with cozy sofas, deck chairs, and ambient lighting. This open-air space transforms into a sealed and pressurized environment before the submarine submerges, as reported by Daily Mail.

Design firms, such as Migaloo, typically produce intricate visualizations of their visionary projects to captivate billionaires and turn these ideas into reality.

Around ten years ago, Migaloo introduced a concept for floating private islands, but these imaginative islands have yet to become a reality.
