U.S. Submarines, Inc. was first formed in early 1993 in Washington State by L. Bruce Jones and Ellis Adams.

The company was established to design, engineer, manufacture and market submarines and submersibles. Initially, manufacturing facilities were established in LaConner, Washington but the firm relocated to Vero Beach, Florida in 1996 and the company maintains manufacturing facilities there currently (as of January 2008). The company developed the concept of the personal diesel electric luxury submarine, and also builds multi-role submarines and submersibles for a number of applications. All of our submarines are capable of diving to 305 meters (1000 feet) and are classed +A1 Manned Submersible by the American Bureau of Shipping.

In addition to the Vero Beach facility the company maintains offices or has representatives in: Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Paris, France and Dubai, U.A.E.
