RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And our last word in business: underwater and over the top. In Florida later this month, wealthy daredevils can check out a hot new accessory for their yachts: a three-feet submarine. Some small submersibles have been used by drug smugglers, but the submarine on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is aimed at millionaires and billionaires who want to explore the oceans' depths and are will to spend $3 million to do it. The pricey mini-sub can plunge to more than 3,000 feet and has a clear bubble-like top so that passengers can have 180 degrees views of their underwater cruise. And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
