WHAT: DEEP SEA SUBMARINE
HOW MUCH: ABOUT HK$193 MILLION

 

WHY: It's not often we get a glimpse of life in inner space. With a deep-sea pressure that can crush a steel hull, there just aren't many vessels that are designed to explore the deepest, darkest spots of the ocean.

That's where Triton's 36000/3 submarine steps in.

As the name suggests, this deep-sea diver can travel down to 36,000 feet (11,000 metres) in approximately two hours. It also can fit up to three passengers, making it one of the deepest multipassenger submersibles in the world, and a great way to share an experience with friends and family.

The machine is built for the spunky, intrepid mariner eager to understand and appreciate nautical habitats. Pesky fish hiding behind your submarine's steel-and-titanium casing? That's no longer a problem. Thanks to a fishbowl-like glass sphere, passengers can get uninterrupted, 360-degree views at all times.

If safety is a concern, you can stop holding your breath. The oxygen supply in the submarine lasts up to 16 hours, and there is a reserve oxygen tank for up to 96 hours. And the glass is protected from point impact by internal and external acrylic sheaths.
