I'm not a boat guy, but that looks like fun!
At $65-85k, I don't think I will be ordering one anytime soon, though.

Reserve your own custom built Seabreacher
We are currently selling custom-built versions of our Seabreacher watercraft, so each vessel is built to the customer's specific requirements. At this time, we do not have any pre-built inventory for immediate sale. Orders for custom built Seabreachers are filled based on the order in which securing deposits are receieved.

Price for a custom built Seabreacher is dependent on the number of options that a customer chooses, but price tends to range from US$ 65,000 for a standard model to upwards of US$ 85,000 for a high-performance, heavily customized version. We have an extensive list of available options, but any specially requested options can also be considered.

Build time is typically about 90 days, but we currently have a nine month waiting list on new orders. Innespace is in the process of expanding production to meet the high demand, but each vessel will still be purpose built for each customer.

We ask prospective customers to submit a preliminary deposit purchase agreement along with a refundable deposit of $US 1500.00. Once this has been received, we provide a purchase order number and establish an estimated price and construction time for the customer's specified vessel. Customers with registered order numbers are also invited to visit our facility in Northern California to see our operation and our watercraft first hand.


If the customer chooses not to proceed with their order they may cancel it at anytime. They will forfeit their production order number, but their deposit will be refunded in full. If the customer chooses to proceed with their order, a payment of 30% is requested at the time their order number comes up and we commence construction of the specified vessel.

If you think you are interested in having a Seabreacher custom built, we do recommend that you request a purchase order number, so that we are able to accommodate your order as soon as possible. Please download and fill out the purchase deposit agreement below and please contact us if you have any questions in regard to purchasing.

RESERVE AN ORDER NUMBER HERE


65 to 85 K .a little pricy for a 2 seater.

I think it is one of those things that are actually cooler to watch then to ride.
That "waveslapping" is not gentle on the spine.

I have a remote control boat that does the exact same thing and works on the same principals. I got it to jump out of the pool once! Its a lot of fun to play with, but for some reason the rear rudder seized up, so I can't drive it anymore.

When I was in my 20's all that wave slapping was a lot of fun. Now I prefer the rocking motion more.

I actually have no desire what so ever to try that. Of course with my neck, it'd probably leave me in pain for months.

I notice that you don't necessarily have to breach, you can run it pretty hard without breaching like a maniac.

What would be really cool is if it was fully submersible. I think that is the next logical step. It would open up a whole new world for it and make it much more useful and fun. It would also make it a little more dangerous because something that can move fast underwater would easily hit a rock, reef or other object and rupture its hull. That should not be completely catastrophic if they make it buoyant so that it can only remain submerged if it has forward momentum.

Okay....that DOES look like fun!!

BUT if I spent 65K on a toy boat about now, the local sheriff would end up asking my woman where she buried the head.

I wonder if they could add an electric drive and some more ballast, to keep it running under water for a longer period of time. That would make it even more fun.

You know about him? I'm not sure what this is about anymore. BoonDawg lost me with his last comment. You may have just cleared it up though.

Should be easy to fix. Take the deck up at least around the rudder area, even if you have to cut it. The rudder is simple, its just a plastic or metal rod connected to a small electric servo. Its not uncommon to strip a tooth on a gear inside the servo. Cars steering servos jam all the time from shocks. If its a standard servo, like Futaba or Airtronics, they have replacement nylon gear sets for a few dollars. If its some custom set up, just replace it with a new servo for $10. Theres only 3 wires (red/black/white) that need spliced into the original wires. It could also just be the linkage bent or jammed up. If its too much to tackle for you, most shops selling RC stuff will fix it for you.

I am just hesitant to really try to open the shell of the boat, because it is water tight, and I'd hate to have a leak and short out the electronics. It is a Nikko Aqua Dodger, not a super high dollar toy. The rudder is driven by a long shaft, that is nearly inaccessible without completely dismantling the case of the boat.
