Watch this Porpoise-Like Personal Submarine Dive and Fly Above the Water
Are you like me? Do you dream of propelling through the ocean at high speeds like a a dolphin or killer whale? Well, one company wants to make all your porpoise dreams come true. It’s called Seabreacher, and it’s a shark and killer whale-inspired (seriously) watercraft that goes on top of, below and even above the water. You know, like a porpoise.

The company is calling it a personal submarine, but it’s much more than that. With 260 horsepower, it's one of the fastest personal watercrafts on the market, and as mentioned, it jumps out the water and even does barrel rolls— if you’re enough of a daredevil, that is.
It was unveiled this year at the Big Boys Toys exhibit in Dubai, and already, the company has sold 12 versions of its personal watercraft, with five more currently being built for customers. You guessed it— all in the UAE.

Founders Danny Piazza and Rob Innes have been building and selling boats for nearly 15 years. The unique Seabreacher idea came to mind nearly five years ago, and has been in development since. It wasn’t until this year that the project finally took off.
Want one? Each Seabreacher is built to order and costs a mere $115,000, which is actually pretty cheap for a personal submarine. Unfortunately, US buyers might have to wait a bit as the Seabreacher is only available in the Middle East and Africa at the moment.
