The Dolphin Sub

Coolest Personal Sub ever !

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/200...ideo-dolphin-s/

This is one wild and expensive water toy. This boat can hold two people and is able to dive up to two feet under water for up to 20 seconds at a time. When the craft surfaces it can jump up to 10 feet in the air and perform tricks.

When the craft is in the air you can perform barrel rolls and the like. The current model is called the Seabreacher and is 14 foot 10 inches long and weighs in at 1000 pounds. Power for the craft comes from a 175 HP Atkins marine rotary engine and you can get an optional 240 HP super charged engine that weighs in at 300 pounds. One of the designers had this to say about aerobatic maneuvers in the Seabreacher. “It's really just for fun. It's a 3-D jet ski. We liken it to a monster truck. In the end we would like to turn it into a recognized sport as you can race and jump. You can do a single or double roll in the Seabreacher which is great fun though the landing is quite rough.” The craft is a one of and would cost in the neighborhood of $78,000 to build.

Two feet underwater? That doesn't sound very deep for it to be part sub, pretty neat though.
