Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson


It’s well established that Sir Richard Branson is both a geek and one of the richest people on Earth. He owns islands and has spent lots of money on commercializing space flight. Overall, he’s the sort of rich geek I wish I could be. He also has one of the fastest catamarans on the oceans called the Necker Belle.

Necker Nymph

That catamaran isn’t nearly as cool as the Necker Nymph. No, that isn’t some sort of porn show you can only see aboard the catamaran, it’s a submarine. The sub is sort of like an underwater airplane. It looks sort of like the Lotus Esprit that James Bond turned into a submarine to me.


You can rent the Necker Nymph for a full day along with an underwater chauffeur to drive you and a guest around under the waves for a full day if you have the loot. The sub isn’t enclosed so you will need SCUBA gear and dives can last for up to two hours at up to 30-meters deep. At $2,500 (USD) per day, the rental is surprisingly reasonable (at least if you’re Sir Richard Branson).
