A traditional yacht won’t do anymore. Now you need one that can dive deep underwater.
Migaloo is now taking orders for a luxury submersible superyacht called the M5 that most multi-billionaires can only dream of owning. The company is asking 10 figures for the seacraft limiting its clientele to the richest of the rich.

The M5 is for the multi-billionaire who doesn’t want to just cruise the seven seas, but wants to see what’s underneath them as well. The seacraft measures 544 feet end to end and is 75 feet wide, giving it enough room for a maximum of 20 guests and 40 crew members. It has a range of more than 9,300 miles and can travel at speeds of up to 20 knots when surfaced and 12 knots underwater. It can also descend to a depth of 820 feet and then stay there for up to four weeks.
As impressive as all that may read, we’re only scratching the surface. Migaloo is billing the M5 as the world’s first luxury submersible superyacht. The Graz-based firm promises it will go all out to deliver the sort of amenities its ultra-ultra-rich clientele expect. It intends to work with customers to design the interior of their dreams, but they can expect an opulent dining room with room for 36 guests and panoramic glass walls, a curated wine cellar, and a technologically advanced cinema. There will also be two swimming pools, a jacuzzi and—because this is a superyacht we’re talking about—a helipad.
When the M5 is surfaced, there is also a healthy stable of water toys for the owner and their guests to enjoy. These include five Sea-Doo Jet-Skis, Seabobs, Zapata Racing flyboards and hoverboards, and everything else you need for paddleboarding, kitesurfing, and kayaking. There are also two custom Midget-Submarines, two submersibles, and several ROVs and UUVs. There’s little risk of getting bored onboard the M5.
There were 2,540 billionaires in the world as of last year, according to Forbes. And less than two-thirds of them are even worth as much as the M5’s $2 billion asking price. To put this sum into perspective, the M5 will cost more than twice as much as the world’s most expensive yacht, Lürssen’s $800 million Dilbar, and more than four times as much as Jeff Bezos spent on the $485 million Koru.
