Waverunner Sized Submarines U-Boat Worx - Invade The Ocean

U-Boat Worx creates some pretty cool submarines for the general public.

The U-Boat Worx submarines come in 2 models a one or two seater. You wont get wet, since Both submersibles are fully enclosed.

Some of the features I thought were pretty interesting are Air Conditioning, Ultra Light-Weight, You wont need a support boat or heavy cranes to launch it.

The U-Boat Worx submersible is meant to be launched anyplace, tow it to the lake , ocean, or that dark old flooded rock query.

This submersible has about 150 minutes of air time and goes to a depth of about 50 meters.

Lets talk about safety, The technology the U-Boat Worx designers have created a pressurized cabin to protect you from the extreme pressures at greater depths and The reliable pressure hull is extensively tested so you can be sure you are safe. Additionally, redundant depth control systems are integrated so as to make sure you can not exceed the maximum depth.

In case the submersible exceeds the maximum depth, air will automatically be blown into the Ballast Tanks and bring the submersible back to the surface. The Sub also equipped with an advanced life support system that guarantee the air you breathe is always fresh. Finally, a thorough training program will ensure that a pilot can cope with any situation.

I don't believe the U-Boat Worx underwater craft is available in the USA as of yet. I think this is a pretty cool gadget that fills a void. I live down here in South Florida this would be a great way to spend a weekend.
