British auto — and yacht— maker Aston Martin revealed this week the designs for its first submarine, codenamed Project Neptune, which will reportedly set back any Jules Verne adventurer about $4 million.

The renderings displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show revealed a three-person vehicle with an acrylic bubble in its cabin for maximizing underwater views, according to a company release.

Aston Martin expects the luxury sub will be available in about a year, the company’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman told Bloomberg News at the event, also confirming its price tag. The company will only make a dozen or so, protecting the exclusivity.

For comparison, the company also showed off its AM37 yacht that first debuted in September 2016, which starts at $1.64 million. And from the garage, its V8-powered DB11 retails for about $200,000.

Florida-based Triton Submarines, which has been making luxury subs for a little more than a decade, will collaborate with Aston Martin.

As its push into luxury and high-powered boats has expanded, Aston Martin is also growing a real estate offering. It partnered last year with Miami-based G&G Business Developments on Aston Martin Residences, a 400-unit waterfront condo project in downtown Miami.
