This Looks Like Fun

It’s called Seabreacher, a two-person semi-submersible water craft with a top speed of 100 km/hour on the surface and 40 km/hour underwater.  It can dive up to 1.5 metres beneath the surface for as long as 30 seconds.  With a sharp pull-up, it can “breach” out of the water as high as 6 metres.  Side sticks provide full three-axis control, and rolls can be performed.

It’s powered by a 300 horsepower (224 kW) Rotax engine.  With the canopy closed, the cockpit is watertight and doesn’t flood when submerged.  It is powerful enough to tow water skiers.

There are a variety of models and customisations available.  Price is estimated between US$ 80,000 and 100,000, so it ain’t cheap.

Here is the manufacturer’s Web site.

  1. 10 Cents:
    How much for the entry level water wings?

    Planning on using it when you finally get to the washing machine, sock?

    Seriously now, I think I saw this in Popular Mechanics or some such magazine some years ago.

    I am a poor sock. I have trouble paying the lint every month.
