Cute isn't usually a word you'd associate with submarines but the C-Quester 2 and C-Quester 3 submersibles from U-Boat Worx are like the Smart Car of the ocean. Superyacht Times reports that the new designs will be shown during the Monaco Yacht Show 2008. The two-person C-Quester 2 is designed to be a new toy for megayachts, while the three-person C-Quester 3 can be used by seaside hotels and resorts to offer guests a new experience. Each has a releasable safety buoy, air conditioning, underwater communication, altimeter, sonar, and optional video cameras and tracking systems. The electric C-Questers can dive up to a depth of 100 meters and run on a Lithium-Ion battery. The first C-Quester 3 will be launched at the end of this year with additional rollout scheduled for next spring. Drivers have to be trained as a submersible pilot before using.
