In keeping with our mission to find the best and most revolutionary products for our customers we are delighted to be the first on-line company to be offering the incredible Orcasub.
This is a 2 man submarine capable of diving to depths of up to 6000 feet (Depending on the model purchased).
Based on the principle of “Underwater flight” this craft uses thrust, lift and drag, using its wings and a joystick to allow to bank, turn and curve, as if you were in a plane.
This incredible undersea vehicle is battery powered allowing you to glide silently through the water at speeds of around 6 knots.
The cockpit is similar to that of a typical aircraft. Pilots are encased in one of two cockpits, pressurised spaces topped with Perspex domes allowing a 360 degree view. There is a joystick, rudder pedals, compass and altitude indicator.
Because this craft is so quiet you can eyeball fish and other underwater creatures without scaring them off. The possibilities are endless. It can also be used to explore shipwrecks and coral reefs; you can use it to survey oil rigs and other large underwater structures or for underwater filming or marine research. You really can “Fly” beneath the waves.
Built to Lloyds Registry standards this craft is loaded with safety equipment including anti-collision sonar, under and over surface long range communication systems, self-rescue emergency systems, state of the art navigation and tracking systems and 80+ hours life support per pod.
The vehicle can be launched from the land or at sea and is also designed for launching from yachts.
The Orcasub is built in Vancouver and, of course, any purchaser will be given full flight training.
This is the ultimate in undersea recreation, a vehicle designed with safety and “Fun” in mind but also the ultimate yacht accessory.” The Orcasub is an extremely serious piece of equipment suitable for either marine research or just recreational use. Designed to carry 2 pilots at depths of down to in excess of 1,800 metres it is loaded with equipment to keep the pilots safe.
