The $80 million luxury sub is absolutely amazing. USS Dolphin was only 165 feet long and nowhere near as comfortable. The fact that it is rated for 1,000 feet is impressive. However, no matter what the writeup says, there is nothing routine or safe about submarine operations. I can't imagine operating a sub purely for fun. The operating/maintenance costs would be staggering. But I guess if you have $80 million to blow on a sub, what's another $5-20 million per year to keep it operational?
