Sea Breacher

A relatively new kind of marine species is called "Seabreacher".

These watercraft vessels started appearing from 1997 and have been evolving at a rapid pace. Seabreachers enable their controllers to maneuver swiftly through the water: diving, jumping, rolling, porpoising... all within the safety and comfort of a dry, sealed cockpit.

The average copy is capable of reaching 40 mph / 60 kmh on the surface, and up to 20 mph / 40 kmh under water. But the rare Seabreacher X model is capable of 50 mph / 80 kmh on the surface and up to 25 mph / 40 kmh under water! They have been designed to operarate in salt water as well as fresh water.

Unlike their organic ancestors that can dive as deep as 990 feet / 300 meters, they are capable of diving 5 feet under water for recreational purposes only. And where sharks and dolphins survive on a variety of fish, the elegant Seabreacher runs on gasoline. It is because of these characteristics that Seabreachers must be classified as objects of 'biomimic marketing'.

Saw one of the videos with a guy standing on the back, holding onto the top fin, while the Sea Breacher was going along, quite fast. PLEASE, it's only a matter of time before a sudden stop against a wave, or, a steep dive, throws you into that fin and impales you. STOP doing that!

The French shipyard Piratus is also working on a new dolphin boat generation at the fraction of the price of this one. Seems will be available at the end of 2011.
