Ortega Mk. 1C Personal Submarine

Designed to be slim, sleek, and hydrodynamic, the Ortega Mk. 1C Personal Submarine works just as well above or below water level. This unique three-person vessel is propelled by twin high power electric motors to speeds of up to 9 knots at the surface and 11 knots submersed. It’s got no canopy so you’ll need to be ready to get wet — preferably with a wetsuit — but the sub does provide on-board breathing apparatus, 250 litres of cargo space, and a heads-up display complete with navigation systems. Its 80 nautical mile range is impressive, as is the ability to jump in and out of the craft while underwater for touching, not just looking at, the plants and animals deep below the sea.
