This is the easiest submersible to operate in the world because it hovers in-place without the need for adjusting ballast or managing drop weights.
This is the easiest submersible to operate in the world because it hovers in-place without the need for adjusting ballast or managing drop weights. Requiring no more skill than driving a car, the sub’s fixed positive buoyancy combines with its six 400-rpm, 1.2-kilowatt ducted propellers—two front and four rear—to provide easy omnidirectional movement and stand-still hovering underwater next to reefs, wrecks, and underwater species. Capable of exploring the twilight zone down to a depth of 400', its streamlined composite pressure hull keeps two explorers safe in custom carbon fiber seats, with acrylic domes optimized for best underwater sightseeing. Intuitive and fly-by-wire controls (from either cockpit), two independent digitally monitored oxygen systems, and a closed-circuit internal (and VHF-to-surface) communications system provide submariners with a safe, flexible environment for investigating underwater anomalies. The entire craft is powered by a rechargeable 15kWH battery. Includes comprehensive training. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply.
