Two questions:

1) How accurate is the 10% per year operating cost rule? People like to throw that number around a lot when you ask how much it costs to run a super yacht. But on something like Dilbar which cost around $600m to build, it doesn't seem right that it would cost $60m per year to run. I would think like $15-$20m tops.

2) Many yachts are starting to add personal submarines from the likes of Triton and U-boat Worxs, etc. Is there a restriction on when and where those subs can operate or can you pretty much drop them in the water anywhere?

Because they used to do shows about just history and barely anyone watched. So they were faced with a choice. Either change their programming to more reality based shows with a kind of history twist (like Pawn Stars) or close up shop.

What are the rules on diving? Are there certain places you can and can't go in a submarine? Also when you are diving do you need to alert anyone or file for permits or can you just go out and dive whenever?
