The MIGALOO: An Ultra-Luxury Private Submarine That Comes With A Pool

From YouTube: Check out this ultra-lux submarine. Called The MIGALOO, it offers upscale amenities like a pool and a large deck.

Choosing a yacht can be such a chore for wealthy folks. With almost too many to choose from, you might have an easier time picking your perfect submarine.

The MIGALOO is billed as "The Ultimate Lux Sub". It offers upscale amenities like a pool and a large deck for relaxation.

Marketed as an alternative to luxury yachts, as expected, it offers the option to travel below the water's surface.

Measuring over 375 feet long by 36 feet wide, the submarine is anything but small. It bears the appearance of a traditional submarine in most aspects but the tower is custom designed in order to house a staircase and elevator shaft.

The designers stated "The enormous space of the aft deck includes lounge areas, sun beds, a bar, an 8 by 3 meter-pool as well as a heli-pad that offer a wide range of activities and possibilities. When MIGALOO is submerged, all furniture is stored in large storages underneath the granite decking."

What do you think? Would you like to own this submarine?

Supercar Yacht: Dream Machine Or Ego Gone Mad? -- CNN

(CNN) -- The height of luxury -- or a vulgar monstrosity?

To its owner, this 15-meter, Lamborghini-inspired speedboat is the apex of nautical engineering. A sleek, innovative, gutsy vessel worthy of its $1.1 million price tag.

But others disagree.

When Gino Gargiulo turned up at the Miami Boat Show with his banana-yellow beauties in tow -- the boat and the $750,000 car it resembles -- a small crowd quickly gathered around.

"This is the best boat you can buy -- it's the Lamborghini of boats," says the 48-year-old automobile and restaurant mogul from Miami, Florida.

My Comment: If it is attention that he wants .... he certainly got it with this boat/car.
