C-Quester lets you live in a yellow submarine

C-Quester lets you live in a yellow submarineOkay, so it looks more like a dark mustard. The C-Quester 2 and C-Quester 3 submersibles from U-Boat Worx are like a Smart Car for the ocean. They’ll be shown at the Monaco Yacht Show 2008. The two-person C-Quester 2 is designed to be a new toy for megayachts. In other words a plaything for the filthy rich. The three-person C-Quester 3 can be used by seaside hotels and resorts so guests can have some fun.

Each features a safety buoy, air conditioning, underwater communication, altimeter, sonar, and optional video cameras and tracking systems. The electric C-Questers can even dive up to a depth of 100 meters and they run on a Lithium-Ion battery. The first C-Quester 3 will be available at the end of this year with more scheduled for next spring. Unfortunately drivers have to be trained as a submersible pilot before using. And since there’s no four seater, you won’t see the Beatles while you’re out and about, but maybe a Blue Meanie or two.

A sub which doubles as a powerboat…how cool is that?

It’s the Marion Hyper Sub and you’ll find that while there is no price as of yet, you can damm well bet you’ll need to be diving for treasure to pay for this once it appears at your local port of call.

The Marion Hyper Sub is described by Tuvie as a “submersible powerboat.” What exactly does this mean? Think powerboat meets sub. It can reportedly run with the big boys on the surface at decent speeds and take you down underneath the waves when things start to get rough in the cloudy skies above.
