Personal submarines for the everyday Joe

The 'Goby' seats three for only $40,000

Exomos

Shockingly, we're finding that not everyone can afford to pay the $80 million or even the $12 million charged by U.S. Submarines to make custom luxury submersibles. But there's still hope for you cheapskates out there who still wish to play Captain Nemo.

Dubai-based Exomos will sell you your very own yellow submarine (or blue, green, orange, black or white) for only $40,000. The battery-powered "Goby" model carries three people and can cruise up to 40 meters below the surface for 8 kilometers per charge, according to Red Ferret, with on-board GPS and sonar scanning technologies. Best of all, its "flat acrylic and bubble windows" provide 360-degree views.

Nice, but we're still saving up for a bionic dolphin .
