If you own a superyacht or want one, you might be looking for a way to enhance your ocean adventures. I mean, think about it, there's only so much you can do on the yacht itself, relax on the sun bed, socialize on the deck, or perhaps enjoy a meal in the dining area.

If you're looking for a little more excitement, you could hop on a sea bob, take out that jet ski, or even try the thrill of kiteboarding. Anyone who has spent some time cruising on a yacht has probably enjoyed at least one of these. But what about underwater exploration in a mini-submarine? If that catches your attention, allow us to introduce you to Triton Submarines.

While most people don't even think about submarines outside the military and professional deep-sea exploration, there are much smaller and more luxurious submersibles designed specifically for leisure. Only a handful of companies design and develop submarines for this purpose, and you could argue that Triton Submarines is the leader in this niche.

Devised to be companions to your yacht, Triton's leisure submarines perfectly complement the super yacht experience. The company also has extensive experience integrating submarines with different platforms. Whether you're working on a new superyacht build or intend to integrate with an existing vessel, Triton engineers will ensure you get a safe and efficient solution.

Triton offers different categories of submarines ranging from professional submarines to ultra-deep and leisure submersibles. But we have little interest in a conversation about work — we're only interested in leisure submarines, so let's explore some of Triton's offerings in this space.

Triton 1650/3 LP

One of the most popular models in this category is the Triton 1650/3 LP, which the company describes as "the world's lightest and most compact three-passenger submersible." With a weight of 8800 lb and a profile of 5.9 ft, the 1650/3 is small and light enough to be integrated into a standard superyacht tender garage. Additionally, it can dive up to 500 meters (1,650 feet) deep and has a 12-hour endurance period.

Project Neptune

Another remarkable model that will interest any yacht owners looking for a new hobby is Project Neptune, a limited-edition submersible built in collaboration with Aston Martin.

When Aston Martin is in the picture, it's safe to conclude that you'll get something exceptionally stylish. This submersible combines Triton's engineering prowess with Aston Martin's design expertise, creating a stunning and luxurious underwater tourer that apparently "dives as an Aston Martin drives." That statement will likely resonate with every exotic car enthusiast and generate a fair amount of excitement.

Perhaps the only thing you'll miss is the engine note from your Aston Martin supercar, but that's likely a small price to pay for enjoying a dive in such a gorgeous machine. The fact that it features four times the power-to-weight ratio of Triton's flagship professional submarine, the 3300/3 MKII, is a testament to that.

Like the 1650/3, the Project Neptune submersible seats three people, dives up to 500 meters (1,650 feet), weighs 8,800 lb, and has 12 hours of endurance.

Larger Models

If you're cruising on a superyacht, you'll likely be with friends and family to share the memories. A three-seater may not be large enough to accommodate your guests, and why would you want to go on the journey without them? But you don't need to worry. Triton offers larger leisure models:

Triton 3300/6

With a capacity of six (you may have guessed that from the naming convention), the Triton 3300/6 comes with the world's largest spherical acrylic pressure hull. This body ensures a breathtaking immersive view that will leave you wanting more at the end of each dive. The ability to head to depths of 3,300 feet makes the vessel even more desirable.

Since this submersible is optimally designed for deployment from a superyacht, you can deploy it with standard tender lifting arrangements.

Triton 660 AVA

The Triton 660 seats up to 9 people and uses Triton's Advanced Versatile Acrylics(AVA) to build the planet's first submersibles featuring a free-form acrylic pressure hull. It dives to 660 feet and has a relatively small footprint when considering its capacity.

Beyond the technicalities, what makes this submersible special is the added space. This additional space lets owners share the underwater experience with more people. And to make things more appealing, Triton also offers different interchangeable interiors that are customizable to suit the intended use.

You can get creative with how to take advantage of this extra perk. For example, you could host private dining, enjoy cocktails, and maybe even have a small wedding that no one will ever forget.

Owning a superyacht comes with many perks, from the joy of cruising on the open seas with complete control of the destination to the luxurious amenities that make every voyage so relaxing. Including a personal submersible takes this experience to a whole new level. Diving deep into the ocean to explore the world beneath is undoubtedly an experience many can only dream of.
