While some consider owning your own private jet to be a sign of true wealth, others think differently. For them, the true mark of wealth is if you have your own private submarine. Many celebrities own submarines, but almost none of them reveal them. They are secretive vehicles that celebrities like to keep hidden. One such submarine is the Pagoo. This baby was built by a Canadian company called International Submarine Engineering Ltd. in 2007, and cost a cool $15 million.

You might be surprised at who owns this amazing jet. Actually, it's pretty rare that individuals own this thing at all, considering it was built and designed primarily for the US military.
