When you see a boat do you ever think; that’s it? Can’t you do anything else? In some circles (let’s call them anti-boat-ites) the comparison is often made to the snorkeler. Relegated to the surface, they are 2-dimensional players in a 3-D game.

Enter the Scubacraft. A relatively affordable ‘recreational submersible’ capable of taking your friends tubing and then diving with ease to depths of 30 meters (98.5 feet) or more. Yes this toy can be yours; starting at the low introductory price of $165,000 USD.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

– Scubacraft uses patented technology that allows it to transform its buoyancy from a floating craft into a streamlined submersible
– The craft is powered on the surface by a combustion engine and underwater by electric thrusters and batteries
– In normal operation, Scubacraft is designed to have slight positive buoyancy at all times. If at any time the craft loses power it will slowly float back to the surface in a controlled manner
– If so required, Scubacraft will be able to lose its positive buoyancy in a special ‘park’ mode, thus allowing occupants to depart from the craft and perhaps swim off to explore inside a shipwreck

KEY FEATURES:

– Advanced safety features include an automatic depth control (ADC) system that assists the operator in maintaining depth, controlling ascent and descent
– VHF radio, underwater communications, lights and GPS are accessories that further enhance safety and performance in operation
– Scubacraft also features an integrated SMB (Surface Marker Buoy) system that indicates its presence underwater to all surface craft and incorporates an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) transmitter
– The modular configuration allows for the electric system to be removed and replaced as necessary, adding extra batteries for extended operations or more thrusters for more power. A wide range of accessories including lights and cameras can be added to extend its underwater capability and enhance the user’s experience.
– With no exposed propeller and the ability to operate in very shallow water, the technology has advantages over conventional surface craft even before it submerges underwater.
– A wet submersible, the entire structure is free flooding and components are individually sealed to pressure
