    Square windows are the worst possible design feature in a pressure hull.

    Typical stupid "rendering" with a bit of smooth talking advertisement.

    All it will take is one un-obvious mistake and it will be at the bottom of the ocean, with your Yachtie owners.
    Not going to be like the idiots who just turn on the motor(s) and try to keep it off of the islands.

    Nice rendering - probably done by some high school freshman. All too many renderings in the world.
    I notice that all there were are renderings. Anyone know of a real boat from this company?

    LOL! Yes, it is evidently yet another self-promotional article for magazines, who cares if it appears clueless when it comes to practical aspects of submarine design (or even just to basic pressure-vessel engineering).
    But I cannot blame them, it's a tough world out there. One has to fight fiercely for his piece of the cake, and the size of the cake has shrunk quite a lots lately.

    Cit.:
    "adheres to strict safety codes designed by the U.S. Navy"
    "Of course, safety is a major focal point"

    Of course. Large square windows are such a nice example of the safety-oriented design philosophy.

    I like this website presentation much better.

    Design, engineering and building of exclusive private submersible superyachts and floating islands

    BTW, If its not very deep diving, pressure restrictions are less.

    Its a great fantasy - don't encourage them.

    Just think about the DEA meeting you at the dock everytime you come home from overseas!!!

    I like inventive and courageous people, but that hull structure (or better said - the lack of structure) and the side doors/marinas arrangement need a serious reality check.

    Test depth 450 m

    Stealth design too... Navies around the world will have a shiny new prey for anti-sub drills. :rolleyes:

    I think they should limit it to 500 feet

    It is shocking that the M7 Submarine is faster on the surface than under water.

    Because under water the engines give just seahorse power. :p ;)
