Aston Martin unveiled a new submarine at the Monaco Yacht Show.

The three-person sub, called Project Neptune, will cost around $4 million and is expected to be released in a year. The submarine is a collaborative effort between Aston Martin Consulting and Triton Submarines, a luxury submersibles company. The sub holds three passengers and has a bubble-style cabin for maximum views under water.

The sub is based on Triton’s Low Profile styling designed for superyachts. According to Triton, it is the lightest and smallest three-person sub in production. It will be able to dive more than 1,600 feet beneath the surface and can travel 3.5 miles per hour.

Aston Martin has offered several other luxe options besides cars and submarines. Last year, it partnered with yacht companies to create a luxury motorboat, and it has also teamed with a luxury developer for a waterfront condo project in Miami.
