It can be used for both waterskiing and underwater exploring. It goes 50 mph on the surface and it is capable of a 164-foot descent while carrying three passengers. It also has a 100-mile range and there are no exposed propellers, which makes it safe as well as fun.
Along with the dual-level action and adventure potential, there also is a SCUBACRAFT that is built to carry six passengers. The SC3 Volt is an all-electric powered watercraft. However, it is not all fun and games, as this trimaran-hull vessel also gets props for having value beyond recreational uses. Its size and performance capability enable it to fit in well with marine and science-related matters, security and commercial usage.
A SCUBACRAFT designed to carry three riders is nearly 15 feet in length, seven feet wide and just under six-feet in height. It can haul a maximum load of 880 pounds. It is powered by a 160 horsepower naturally aspirated four-stroke, inline four-cylinder DOHC engine setup. There also is a larger model available that would carry six passengers.
The twin-tunnel hull features manual dive controls, a GPS and dive computer, a surface VHF radio, onboard air supply with reserve, and multiple-dive platform. Special options available include an underwater filming platform, an underwater communications system, and imaging sonar. It is priced at around $144,000. For more information, visit SCUBACRAFT.com.
