Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx has launched its latest personal submarine, allowing you to explore the mystical depths of the ocean down to 330 feet deep.

Dubbed the NEMO, the submersible weighs in at only 5,510 pounds, making it the lightest manned submarine in the world. Measuring just five feet tall, less than eight feet wide, and nine feet long, its incredibly compact, with its lightweight construction allowing you to either store it on your yacht or tow it behind a truck. Of course, this means you can deploy it from the land via a boat ramp as well. Despite its size, it’ll still fit two people — a pilot and a passenger — both of whom are given a completely uninterrupted view of the sea courtesy of the transparent acrylic domed sphere housing the cockpit. It’s easily piloted via a game console-like controller and has enough juice to operate for eight hours at a time.

As the only series-produced submersible in the world, the U-Boat Worx NEMO is now taking orders for roughly $1 million USD. Head over to its website to learn more.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, RM Sotheby’s is hosting an auction for the Elkhart Exotic Car Collection.
