How do you know you’re really wealthy? I don’t mean fly first class wealthy, I mean really, really wealthy. If you’re truly wealthy you buy yourself a submarine.
U.S. Submarines is one supplier of the luxury subs. Their Seattle 1000 model, with a price tag of a cool $25 million, is three stories tall and contains five staterooms, two kitchens, a gym, a wine cellar and a lovely observation portal. If any of you go out and buy one after reading this, please remember who told you about it. I’d love to go on a ride.
The Seattle Times writes that there is at least one problem with owning a luxury sub. There are two groups of people zooming around in the ocean with subs. One group is the super rich and the other group is the military. Evidently the side sonar scanners on the subs of the wealthy look alarmingly like torpedo tubes to the military. Good communication is key to prevent nasty accidents. Civilian sub owners should always let the military know if they’re going to be watching sea life near any military bases.
