The submarine is called UWEP, an acronym for Under Water Entertainment Platform, and measures 115 feet long, 25 feet wide, and 23 feet tall (35m x 7.5m x 7m), offering over 1,600-square feet of floor space that can be used for entertainment purposes.

There's no word yet of how expensive this submersible pleasure craft is going to be but it's going to be out of reach for us mere mortals. However, U-Boat Worx, a company that makes private submarines - this one included - obviously thinks there will be a market for the UWEB. Maybe a high-end tourist company?
So, should you be lucky enough to find yourself aboard, what can you expect? Well, there's space for over 100 people, it's powered by a giant battery that lies beneath the ship's floor, it has a top speed of almost 3 MPH underwater and can reach depths of about 650 feet (200m). In case of an emergency, it also boasts a backup power system that can be activated to keep critical systems turned on for 96 hours until rescue comes.
As you would expect, the submarine features 14 windows that measure almost 15 feet in diameter each to give its passengers extraordinary views of the sights deep in the water. And, if you're travelling at night or go down deep, there's an array of high-powered external lighting to illuminate the underwater world around you.
