If you are planning your vacations in some river or lake side, you must try the new ride of 2016, it looks like a dolphin and it attracts many people too. Its SEABREACHER, a new watercraft by which you can do whatever you want in the lake or river. It looks like a fish but has a power of a motor boat and the experience of riding it is like a submarine, it is the combinations of all the water rides present in today’s time.
Seabreacher can work below the surface of the water as like a submarine, it can make a dive of around five feet and if you dive too low or too sharp, the boat will just pop back to the surface – any deeper and the engine will stall due to lack of air. It has a fin on top which seems like the fin of a shark and it serves as a snorkel, supplying the jet ski-sourced engine with air, while aircraft-style inflatable seals help keep the cabin dry.

The power which moves the breacher as a motor boat comes from a Rotax three cylinder, 1500cc, four-stroke engine. It has inter cooled supercharger helps the engine to 260 hp and this system also used in many other personal watercrafts , which allows it to source parts with ease. The engine has an ECU which is similar we see on modern passenger cars to precisely manage power and fuel consumption, and also includes an integrated oil tank to minimize leaks as well as a patented oil separator that prevents oil from flooding the engine if the Seabreacher rolls over. The closed cooling system means the Seabreacher can be used in fresh or salt water.
For thrust, the seabreacher uses an axial flow jet pump which takes the water from one end which has a low pressure and by passing water from an impeller to compress the water then pushes it out a nozzle that’s smaller than the inlet to create thrust. The top speed the breacher take is around 50 mph on the surface and 25 mph when below the surface.
It also has so many internal features as well, the interior of breacher is fully upholstered and made to the buyer’s specifications. It has an onboard audio system by which you can play music while riding it just simply connects it with your smartphone or iPod and had front and rear LCD screens by which you can see the images from the snorkel-mounted camera.
If you are interested in buying it and want to ride, you can do this just by paying $65K and the price is going up to $85K for high-performance model, with a host of customization options available for the nautical connoisseur. For riding it you doesn’t need a license but you should have the knowledge of riding a typical Wave Runner or power boat works before taking a Seabreacher out on the water, and claims it takes only a short time to master basic operation. Despite its radical design, most of the Seabreacher can be serviced or repaired at a typical marine shop.It comes in the very different variety. You can check the wiki page of its or check the link.
