When OceanGate has not been tested enough Titan submersible pump that went missing last summer captured the attention of millions of people around the world. Authorities frantically scoured the North Atlantic for days, eventually determining that the small ship had catastrophically imploded. where the five passengers were killed instantly. The tragic incident doesn't seem to have actually slowed down demand or interest in the ships among his audience of passionate, and often rich, lovers of underwater research. Another company's latest in ocean submarines, Triton, recently delivered its most eye-catching submarine yet. It won't dive as deep as some industry competitors, but it promises passengers an over-the-top, luxurious experience.

Called the 660/9 AGMthe new ship can dive 180 meters below the surface. (Deep sea technically starts at 656 feet.) The underwater boat offers eight passengers and a pilot a panoramic view of the water world surrounding them. In a video released this week Triton highlighted the submarine and described the 660/9 AGM as “an exploration ship made for extraordinary experiences.” Triton delivered his first 660/9 AGM to a cruise line earlier this month.

The ship's elongated, bell-like design is part of what Triton describes as the world's first “freeform acrylic pressure hull.” Residents who can afford a trip in the glitzy underwater boat can explore marine life in style. Triton says passengers can take part in a variety of premium activities, including 'cocktail diving', 'spa treatments' and 'undersea gaming'. A rendering of the submarine on Triton's website shows it equipped with a blackjack table, dining facilities and plenty of champagne.

Triton has deduced his first 660/9 AVC to the company Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours earlier this month. That particular submarine has been named 'Scenic Neptune II'. Over the next two years, passengers will have the opportunity to lower the underwater boat to take a look at the ocean waters off the coasts of New Zealand, Indonesia and even East Antarctica.

“The clarity of the acrylic hull, once submerged, is such that you feel at one with the water,” said Jason Flesher, director of Discovery Operations for Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours, in a statement. “Encountering the vibrant marine life of the South Pacific and Australia's Great Barrier Reef in Scenic Neptune II will create memories that will last a lifetime.”

Titron was founded in 2007. Since then, its fleet of several submarines has been used for everything from deep-sea research and filmmaking to ambitious ocean exploration. Some of the biggest celebrities in underwater exploration, such as hedge fund manager Ray Dalio and acclaimed film director James Cameron, have previously worked with the company. Both Dalio and Cameron have expressed interest in using such ships to explore new parts of the ocean that are still shrouded in darkness.
