Triton Submarines has begun construction on the first 1650/3 LP submersible, which is scheduled for a September 2016 delivery.

The Triton 1650/3 LP is designed to fit within a standard superyacht tender garage and to be launched with a typical overhead davit. The sub’s height is 5.9 feet, and her crane weight is 8,818 pounds.

She can take a pilot plus two guests as deep as 1,650 feet. And because the sub is built with main ballast tanks, guests can board and disembark from a yacht’s swim platform instead of being inside the sub during the launch or recovery process.

“The Triton 1650/3 LP is the natural evolution of our personal submersible line for the superyacht industry,” Triton CEO L. Bruce Jones stated in a press release. “We engineered it to allow a pilot and two guests to explore the ocean depths in an air-conditioned, safe, one-atmosphere environment while sparing the owner the expense of retrofitting his yacht with a special A-frame davit or running a separate support vessel.”

What it’s made from: an acrylic pressure hull mounted in a partial steel enclosure.
