20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

research submarine Ben Franklin

How many people recall the exploits of the research submarine 'Ben Franklin', and its drift north in the Gulf Stream

Re: Submarine Superyacht

I would just like to see one that has actually been built. Otherwise it kind of has a Nigerian Prince tone to it. You know the "send me your money and I'll build you this cool boat, but send the money first"

If real though, it makes you wonder how safe those windows are once submerged. That's alot of glass to withstand alot of pressure

Re: Submarine Superyacht

There are a couple of companies around with plans drawn up for large yach submarines. To my knowledge no one has ever built one though. If I ever won a couple billion dollar lottery they would be a serious consideration. But I wonder about building from scratch, it seems like buying a decommissioned military sub and converting it would be far cheaper.

Re: Submarine Superyacht

A submarine is the absolute finest solution available for offshore storm survival. Dive! Dive! Dive!

I'm sure there is plenty of room to store a 30+ foot sail boat inside (mast down of course) if you want to get your sailing fix in.

As long as you like being sea sick. Subs can suffer seriously from wave effects even deep under water. The general rule is that in big storms you need to be 400-500 feet deep to eliminate feeling the waves.

Re: Submarine Superyacht

That swimming pool ontop would be easy to fill up
Just dive, dive, dive and then surface to fill the pool..

Re: Submarine Superyacht

I'm looking for a live aboard cruising submarine around 13 meters that will sleep 5 in separate cabins and not feel like a cave. Washer and dryer a must. I already have a CQR anchor that it must fit. Can anyone recommend a brand? 😘
