It's the ultimate billionaire toy: A 377-foot yacht with a swimming pool that doubles as a submarine. The six-deck yacht-submarine hybrid, named "Migaloo" after an albino humpback whale, has not actually been built.

The contraption was created to satisfy the demand of adventurous billionaires who want a truly unique boat, according to Austrian industrial design studio motion code: blue.

With a 26-foot pool, cinema room, helipad, library, gym, laundry room, and private lounges, Migaloo would be perfectly equipped for the discerning billionaire.

Plans call for it to be constructed with special pressure-proof glass and underwater lights to offer spectacular views when the submarine dives.

No word on the cost yet, but given that this will be highly customizable, expect it to be in the multi-million dollar range. :huh:

Where ever you want? If you can afford the ship you could afford to reserve as many consecutive dock spaces as it takes to park it, or drop anchor offshore and take a launch to harbor.

^ 400 feet of space is a LOT.

You'd certainly be limited as to where you could dock.

And I'd hate to think of insurances, cleaning, maintenance, security, crew, etc.

I also expect there would be some harassment by the Navy ...

Why harassment? Like any ship or submersible it'll have a unique acoustic signature the sonar guys can ID at great distances.

Am I the only one who finds it redundant to have a pool on a boat?

I was wondering that at first put they probably have a retractable cover for it when the ship goes underwater.

Aren't modern subs of this size nuclear powered? If so, how will this one be powered?
