The news all James Bond fans have been waiting to hear.

You can now explore the depths of the ocean in luxury – you just need a couple of billion dollars to do so.

Migaloo claims to be revolutionizing the world of superyachts with their very own, world’s first submersible superyacht.

The boat company’s gigantic 928-foot (282-meter) vessel has a helipad for its on-board helicopter, as well as a swimming pool, movie theater, wine cellar, library and much more.

For comparison, the Star Wars-inspired superyacht seems tiny at ‘just’ 442 feet.

It also dwarfs the British Royal Navy’s leading submarine, HMS Astute, at 318 feet.

Although the submersible superyacht isn’t allowed to carry weapons, it’s capable of almost everything else its naval counterpart can do.

According to Migaloo, its submarine – which can cruise at a speed of 40 knots (74 km/h) when submerged – is faster than the Royal Navy’s pride and joy, which travels at a mere 30 knots (55 km/h).

What’s more, the company claims its super sub can also dive to 1,500 feet (457 meters) and is capable of staying there for several weeks at a time.

HMS Astute can only reach a depth of 984 feet (299 meters).

The submersible superyacht also has room on-board for several jet-skis, two 52-feet (15-meter) long, six person mini-submarines; and multiple under-water viewing rooms.

Of course, it features a luxury interior, including a 36-seat dining room with glass walls for guests to take in the views as they eat.

It also boasts an impressive 6,889-square-foot private living quarters for the owner, as well as 3,280-square-feet of reception areas and 1,312-square-feet of guest accommodation.

Christian Gumpold, founder and CEO of Migaloo, revealed the submersible superyacht could cost upwards of $2 billion.

“We think a private submarine will be the most exclusive and most expensive thing a person can own,” he told The Sun Online.

“We are the only company worldwide which offer superyacht-sized private submarines.”

Gumpold said that superyacht owners are increasingly “getting younger” and “they wanted even more extra ordinary and individual designs”.

“They are willing to have something really new and unique, which has never been designed or constructed before – a ‘normal’ surface yacht is not that interesting for them – a private submarine is,” he said.

Now where’s my checkbook??
