MSV Explorer Sub-surface water craft comes with a lifting catamaran
Earlier this year, we have told you about Raonhaje’s electric semi submarine “Ego,” and we have another revolutionary new submersible by British inventor Chris Garner, from GRP Laminates, that also adopts the upside down design but, with a difference. The MSV Explorer sub-surface viewing craft is intended to be used with a 13-metre lifting catamaran for launch and recovery. The self-propelled, sub-surface viewing pod offers a clear and unobstructed view of the undersea environment in an acrylic cockpit.
And it can be rapidly deployed with the SP02 catamaran, which has comfortable seating for 12 passengers plus crew. The pod-shaped submersible is highly maneuverable and can be easily controlled by single or dual joystick or can even be remotely controlled from the catamaran. It can effortlessly take a 360 degree turn on its own axis to let you experience the thrill of scuba diving without any scuba gear. This underwater vessel has an all-day operating capacity of 7.5 hours at full speed. The company is further offering a choice of inboard/outboard and jet propulsion packages to suit individual requirements for speed, cost, and range, but there is word on price yet available.
