It's hard not to be intrigued by a craft that is billed as being "perfect for those 007 moments." Certainly the Scubacraft, a small boat that can happily float on the water or with a few alterations, dive beneath it, would be James Bond worthy. The Scubacraft recently went through underwater testing at the Pinewood Studios, a place where many Bond films have been shot. The Scubacraft can zip along above the water at speed of up to 50 miles per hour and can dive to a depth of 30 meters (nearly 100 feet). It's not a submarine so you will need to wear diving apparatus, something that James Bond probably has built into his special diving tuxedo. The engine produces 160 hp propelling the twin-hulled craft forward at a rapid rate. Underwater electric thrusters give the driver the experience of flying underwater.
The developers of Scubacraft are currently taking orders and expect the first customers to take delivery at the end of 2010. Scubacraft is priced from £100,000 with the final price being largely dependent on specification. Check out video after the jump!
