Aston Martin announced at the Monaco Yacht Show last week that it has formed a creative collaboration with Triton Submarines, the Florida-based manufacturer of state–of-the-art submersibles. Codenamed Project Neptune, the venture enables Aston Martin to further enhance and grow the brand into new aspects of the luxury world, with all the performance, beauty and elegance one has come to expect from the British marque, the company said.

Triton has unparalleled expertise in the design, manufacture and operation of submersibles for researchers, explorers and superyacht owners. Founded in the US by L. Bruce Jones and Patrick Lahey, the team at Triton produce what they claim to be the safest and best performing, deep-diving submersibles in the world.

Project Neptune marries Triton’s diving and operational expertise with Aston Martin’s design, materials, and craftsmanship. Overseen by Aston Martin Consulting, the partnership has shaped a unique concept that will lead to an exclusive, strictly-limited edition vehicle. Project Neptune has taken Triton’s Low Profile (LP) three-person platform as the basis for the vessel.

Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman and his team have transformed Triton’s compact LP platform, creating a vehicle with inherently beautiful proportions. “Project Neptune is defined by its sleek, elegant exterior,” says Reichman. “We have used forms and proportions that express the same devotion to design, engineering and beauty that shape our cars, such as the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar project.

“Those superyacht people, what they want to experience is changing. It’s no longer about just having a launch or having your tender. It’s about having some other way of entertaining your guests,” he said.

Patrick Lahey, President of Triton Submarines said: “We have always admired Aston Martin. The marque represents a deeply held passion for technology, engineering and timeless, elegant design. From our first interaction, it was apparent that Triton and Aston Martin were natural partners and our complimentary values will be realised in this truly exciting project.”

Project Neptune has a length of only 1.8 metres and weighs 3,991 kg, it has a capacity of 3 persons and will reach speeds of up to three knots. The production target is at least 10 per year, each selling for around $4 million.
