I have heard that retired russian diesel submarines were for sale
for DM 200,000 (Us-$ 120,000). That's not much for such a boat.
But remember the operational costs.

These boats are built for service at the baltic sea and so they are
relatively small.

I don't know the state of these boats, but I have seen abandoned
russian army camps. They are completely ruined (rooted?). So I don't
know if it is smart to buy russian surplus.

Have a look at the WWW to find a trader who offers such boats.
