I am not a big fan of water or boats, but I gotta have one of these things! Looks very expensive though.

That is cool!
From there website:
"Price for a custom built Seabreacher is dependent on the number of options that a customer chooses, but price tends to range from US$ 65,000 for a standard model to upwards of US$ 85,000 for a high-performance, heavily customized version. We have an extensive list of available options, but any specially requested options can also be considered."

It works like a regular submarine- you use the bow planes to force the nose down. Only difference is this is much more bouyant so it pops back up again. This is pretty old though, posted back in April..

Anyone remember Beyond 2000, This was on it in Prototype stage. It was almost completely transparent and run a 2 cycle engine


Work because i gotta, play because i wanna

People here hate Nitro, I love it. I start it, run it about 50 ft from me and it dies, I go after it. Perfect exercise

Same way you can submerge any other PWC, its just some kind of baffle i think. The engine doesnt breathe air from outside the craft, it breathes it from the inside.

So then it needs to come up eventually or it will stall (and suffocate the driver ) right?

I would not call that "submersible", more like "dunkable".

It would be much cooler if they fitted a compressed air tank so it could stay down for a while.
