Submersible Watercraft – Extreme Fun.

 

Press Release 2008.
These unique dolphin-inspired submersible watercraft can jump, dive and roll like real dolphins, with cruising speeds of 40 mph and underwater speeds of 20mph—all within the safety and security of a dry, sealed cockpit. “Its the most fun I’ve had in the water, ever,” said Dave Mordal, host of Wreckreation Nation on Discovery.

     

Innespace says that these new recreational two-seaters are designed to be easy to drive and maintain for their customers worldwide. “After over ten years of prototyping, we have really developed a design that is very intuitive to drive, safe, and easy to service” said company co-owner and designer Rob Innes.

 

An international media sensation, these unusual watercraft have been featured on countless television programs.  You might have also seen them in Austin Powers Goldmember.

 

Press Releas 2010.
The Seabreacher X. This exciting new version is based on the dolphin inspired Seabreacher J that the company has been selling for the last two years. The X model sports a more aggressive Shark style body as well as upgraded interior treatments. The X model also steps up the performance envelope with a 260hp supercharged engine, propelling the vessel to a top speed of 50mph on the surface and 25mph below.
“This is the vessel we’ve always wanted to build” says company co-owner Rob Innes. “The power and agility of this vessel is insane!”

 

Some other high tech features that are incorporated into the two-seat vessel: A snorkel mounted video camera transmits live video to LCD screens for the pilot and passenger during dives, GPS navigation, and on board stereo with iPod docking.
Although Innespace vessels start at about $50,000 USD, the limited edition X model goes for a little over $80,000. The company plans to build just 10 of this particular model; two have already been pre-sold.

    Looks like fun mags2, but I have other priorities for spending my superannuation.

      Hi malc50,
      Yes I also think it would be a lot of fun as long as it’s someone else’s money that has paid to have it, I would be more than willing to help them break it in so to speak.

    Hey, this looks like wall-to-wall FUN!

    I’m thinking of a comic book character back in the 50s who had a similar machine; his name was ‘Deep-sea Danny’ and I’m trying toremebber what his mechanical fish was called.

    It’ll probably have to wait till I get home, & see a friend who collects old comics.

    Best,

    Keith (Travelrat)

      Hi travelrat,
      Fun is the ultimate word. Sounds interesting “Deep-sea Danny” and a mechanical fish, sounds like something that would more than likely take off today.

    I love this. I could see myself having a lot of fun scooting up the river.

    This is the way to go, if only I had the money to waste.
