Fancy your own submarine

We are not talking nuclear here, and it isn’t a U boat either, so what can it be? This boat is a submersible; you can go on the water and under the water in it, so yes it is a submarine.

U Boat Worx

You have two choices here, a nine feet long single seater or the eleven feet long two seater craft, and are made by a Dutch company called U Boat Worx, see so it is a U Boat after all!! Both craft are capable of diving under the water down to fifty meters deep, which is quite deep by anybodies standards, with the electrical powered propellers, they can also cruise along on the water at a speed of around four knots. Your submarine can be custom painted to your own designs or you can just go for the standard colors, whatever makes you a happy captain.

The C Quester as they called can stay submerged for up to two and half hours, and like a full sized submarine the occupants once in the cockpit will remain dry, so there is no need for wet suits or any other diving equipment, unless you really want to of course, just to set the scene.

It is believed that this is the first viable attempt to created a under water craft for the general public, of course when we say general public, what we really mean is those people who can afford to spend $127,000 on a toy, it is quite expensive but in these days of the super rich celebrities, I am sure that it wont be long before we begin to some famous faces peeping through the domed top of the C Quester.

    This is one compact submarine that we got here. I hope I can get my hands on this one. Submerging underwater for almost two hours is really great and fifty meters is a decent depth, but I think I can’t afford the price tag as of the moment. 😀
