Tired of your private yacht? Well soon you can add a submarine to your fleet.

Behold, the Neyk, a 60-ft underwater vehicle which can accommodate up to 20 guests and reach depths of 1,640 feet; complete with a lavish lounge area, a bar, a library and a complete galley. 

The James Bond-worthy submarine is fitted with a clear nose that doubles up as a 270-degree viewing area, and is controlled by joysticks in the pilot’s cockpit.

Its makers claim the sleek vessel is as ‘agile as a shark’ with a virtually noiseless engine, and that its lighting and air conditioning systems will be custom-designed for each client’s specific needs.

The Neyk, a collaboration between Ocean Submarine and Rolls-Royce, is currently being built in the Netherlands with the first prototype expected to be presented in January 2018.

There’s no word yet on its price, but we can safely assume you’ll have to dig very deep to afford it.

With its wood-panelled walls, shiny sink and modern lighting, the vessel's bathroom certainly beats that of a standard plane's
