Cue the Bond music and crack open your copy of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, because at long last the super villains and Captain Nemos of the world have private submersible superyachts and floating island lairs available on the market.
The Austrian-based company Migaloo is advertising five different models of submarine, ranging from the M2 (236 ft.) to the M7 (928 ft.). The M7’s design appears to be inspired by the Zumwalt-class destroyer, and is the world’s largest submersible superyacht design. The M7 features six hangers for surface tenders (like smaller yachts), aircraft, and other submarines. Of course, each project is bespoke to your dastardly or heroic needs.
But what good is a secret submarine without a secret island base? The Kokomo Ailand is a private floating habitat that floats upon semi-submersible platforms. The penthouse sits 262 feet above sea level and commands the jungle deck with palm trees. The helipad and shark-feeding station are a short walk down the block.
