Triton 3300/3 MKII submarine

Allen loves that it is American made and will allow him to ditch the scuba gear. “We just took delivery of it. I’m super excited about it. It goes down to 3,300ft with three people. It fits perfectly in the garage on Axis, and it’s the first Triton of this size built with lithium ion phosphate batteries.” The advantages are that they don’t generate hydrogen, they charge more quickly and require less maintenance.

“About 90 per cent of the Caribbean has not been seen with human eyes below 150ft, and I plan on changing that but I’m a 3,000ft-and above guy. I believe that’s where everything is.

“People tell me once I try it, I will never scuba dive again. With scuba, there’s so much equipment. This thing, you just jump in there and you can listen to music. You can eat, you can drink and you can stay down. That submarine will stay down for 96 hours in an emergency. And the neat thing is, because it’s pressurised, you don’t have to worry about decompression.”
