This mini personal submarine will accommodate 4 persons on two decks. The $300,000 amphibious sub-surface watercraft provides above- and underwater viewing options – a perfect toy for exploring underwater environments without the need for a fully submersible craft. Driving right off a trailer and into the water without the need for a crane, tender vessel, or dock, the Amphibious Sub- Surface Watercraft is equipped with heavy-duty rubber tracks able to negotiate up to 30º gradients for convenient ocean-, lake-, or boat ramp-based water entry and egress. The tracks enable 360º axis turns, ideal for precise maneuvering.
The upper cockpit houses controls for two horizontally oriented underwater thrusters that provide up to 6 knots forward/4 knots backward movement as well as 360º turns. While on land, each of the craft’s ground track systems are driven by dedicated 48-volt intercooled electric motors.
Two 24-volt lithium battery banks provide 110 hours of water operation (up to 8 hours on land) before requiring a recharge using the included AC adapter.
