We are Triton Submarines. We build build deep diving submarines (some dive to 7500ft) for superyacht owners, researchers and explorers. Ask us anything about building and operating deep sea submarines.
We are Triton Submarines. We are based out of Vero Beach, FL and build deep diving submarines for superyacht owners, researchers and explorers.
We are really excited to be here. I arranged for the president of the company, Patrick Lahey to be here as well as the head engineer John Ramsay to be here to answer any questions you may have. We also have the entire team of electrical and mechanical engineers, and shop personnel here as well as three submarine pilots here who are all available to answer any questions you may have.

My name is Jeff Cremer and I am a photographer working for the company so let me know if you want me to take some pictures of the inside of outside of the subs and I will post them to @TritonSubs on twitter.
P.S. Please follow us on twitter. We are working on some really amazing projects.
Quick facts about the subs in the picture:
Our submarines are built around a completely transparent acrylic "bubble." The acrylic is so clear that when its in water it seems like it completely disappears and you become one with the ocean.
The two larger subs in the photo weigh 8,000 kg (17,640 lbs) and are 2.6m (8.5 ft) tall. They can dive to a depth of 3300ft (1km) and can carry three people.
The sub in the middle is a smaller sub for operation from the garages of super yachts and research vessels. It can dive to a depth of 500m (1650ft) and also carry three people. It weighs 4,000 kg (8,800 lbs) and is 1.8 m (5.9 ft) tall.
We have just made our Triton 7500/3 submarine available for sale. This is the first acrylic pressure hull equipped manned submersible capable of diving 1.4 miles deep (i.e., 7,500 feet or 2287 meters).
Pressure at 7500 feet are 3,337.5psi. There is a total of 85 million pounds of total force acting on the pressure hull when the submersible is at its maximum depth which is almost equal to the weight of a battleship (USS Missouri). So much force and pressure actually makes the hull shrink a little bit when it is at max depth.
Our subs have explored the deep ocean all over the world including Antarctica, Japan, New Zealand, The Solomon Islands, Bahamas, Malta, Italy and Bikini Atoll. We have seen tons of fantastic wildlife and have had some amazing experiences.
Our subs normally cost between $1.85million to $6.3million
