Killer Whale Submarine To Go Under Auction 1

A killer whale-inspired submersible, which can reach speeds of 62mph, make 16-foot jumps out of the water and perform 360-degree barrel rolls, is set to go under the hammer in the Netherlands in July.

Described by its creator, New Zealand-based Innespace Productions, as “the twisted union of marine mammal and high performance fighter jet”, the five-metre Seabreacher Z has a two-seat cockpit, an acrylic bubble-top canopy with panoramic views, and underwater view ports. 

Unlike conventional watercraft that operate on a two dimensional plane, the Seabreacher operates akin to an aircraft, with three axes of control – pitch, roll, and yaw, allowing the vessel to cut through, jump over, dive under, and carve on the waves.

Founded in 1997 by boat builder Rob Innes and machinist Dan Piazza, Innespace Productions develops adventurous watercraft that can perform extreme ‘aquabatic’ tricks from the safety of a dry, sealed cockpit. The company creates watercraft for the recreational market, as well as racing and demonstration events. 

The Seabreacher was built in Mexico and has a Rotax ACE 1500cc 4 stroke engine, and a snorkel-mounted camera that can provide a live video feed.
