Scubacraft, an innovative boat with a patented technology and high class design can be used both high speed cruising and underwater expeditions. Scubacraft SC3 and SC6, the two models, can be used for high speed racing and for controlled underwater journeys.

The two revolutionary models have been designed with a sole purpose of making the underwater world as much accessible as possible. The SC3 model is 4.5 meters in length and can carry three passengers at a time, whereas the 5.6 meters SC6 can make underwater journeys with a capacity of six people. Moreover, SC6, the more sophisticated model is made especially for the professional divers to facilitate them with a craft for underwater adventure tours.

At water surface, Scubacraft travels at speeds of 50 miles per hour, while as a streamlined submersible it travels at a speed of three knots for 90 minutes at a depth as low as 30 meters. Moreover, one more special feature of Scubacraft is that it takes only minutes to convert from one form to another, i.e. from boat to submersible. The transformation from boat to submersible or vise-verse takes place without the need for an extra tender or toys.

For propulsion, the craft uses a powerful jet propulsion system that allows the boat to tow a water-skier and inflatable water toys on top of the water while a trimaran hull configuration provides a stable diving platform. Also, in order to ensure safety and ideal operation standards, the vessel is controlled by a single person both above and below the water and occupants fit scuba gear before it sinks below the water as a submersible.

Some standard features of the Scubacraft consist of emergency back-up systems, automatic depth control, an integrated Surface Maerker Buoy, and an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon. There is also a wide range of accessories provided on Scubacraft. Some of these accessories include lights, cameras, VHF radio, GPS and underwater communications systems.

Scubacraft can be pre-ordered from the company’s website. The order process requires a 5 percent fully-refundable deposit followed by a further 45 percent deposit 180 days prior to delivery. The final 50 percent payment is due before taking delivery of the water-toy.
