    Dear Santa, This year I would like.....

    Personal Submersible Vehicles

    So called "dry-pressurized" submarines have passenger compartment separate from the water and at sea level pressure; the space between the vehicle and the outer hydrodynamic skin floods with seawater during submerged operation. The submersible's layout is similar to the standard seating arrangement of a passenger automobile. XS100 Duo seats two and XS100 Trio seats three submariners. The intended market would be luxury yacht and resort owners, those who are perhaps bored of a luxury yacht and wanting to try something new (the price of a 2 passenger model for a target depth 100 meters should be close to that of a limited production exotic sports car, i. e. around 400,000€. With the larger production numbers the price can come down to 150,000€). The subs eye-catching design seem to be firmly rooted in the best of a Fin & Chrome style of the 50s.

    I wonder how long it will take for a rich guy to drown in one of these, and the manufacturer to be sued?

    Also, what is 'Mile High CLub' in the water? 'Mile-Low Club"?

    So it looks like this is just a concept at this time, not in production.
