ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
The dynamism of the SEABOB jet develops its special appeal under the water. The watercraft can be steered down into the depths simply by applying light pressure. Man and machine in unison, darting around nimbly. Diving depths of up to 40 metres can be programmed to suit individual requirements via the on-board electronics. A safety cut-off feature reliably ensures that the selected diving depth is not exceeded. Discover the fascinating underwater world in a new dimension.
INTERACTING WITH THE ELEMENT
Leisurely gliding. Sporty driving. Safe diving under water. All this is possible with a SEABOB. Now you can actually move through the water like a dolphin. Freely, both on the surface and at depth. At the same time, the SEABOB is completely environmentally friendly when in its element. It zooms powerfully and almost silently through the water. Darting about with such ease and agility really makes a dream come true for mankind.
A SEABOB offers all-round high-performance. Its hydrodynamic shape provides for an astounding degree of agility in the water. Steering and diving could not be easier – all it requires is for the pilot to shift his bodyweight. Whether you are cruising, zipping through the water or diving. The SEABOB will glide along powerfully with you aboard. Feel the awe-inspiring manoeuvrability. The new-found desire for water will never relinquish its hold on you again.
Easy handling was the uncompromising objective set when developing the new SEABOB. For this reason, the challenge in terms of development was clearly defined. Low overall weight. Extremely stable housing. Powerful drive. These properties make the SEABOB F5 a unique water sports craft. The vehicle can be used anywhere and offers optimal handling.
The specially developed, high-performance electric-drive mechanism with its environmentally friendly technology is an exemplary innovation. The motor is a high-torque synchronised drive unit featuring a microprocessor-controlled 3-phase sinus power management system. The application of cutting-edge technology enables this motor to achieve the ideal amount of torque with outstanding efficiency. All this, and yet the overall design remains very compact. The power for the drive mechanism is provided by highly efficient lithium-manganese accumulators. These high-performance special accumulators are a top-class quality component in the propulsion concept of the SEABOB.
ELECTRIC JET POWER SYSTEM
The worldwide patented E-Jet Power System works according to the principle of water displacement. The water is sucked in by the powerfully rotating impeller and forced out in the jet channel under high pressure. The thrust developed in this way propels the SEABOB forward in superior fashion. Maximum thrust requiring little energy makes the E-Jet Power System a unique drive mechanism for powerful watercraft. Thanks to its electro-technology, the system is absolutely environmentally friendly and offers extremely low operating costs.
A SEABOB is the absolute embodiment of state-of-the-art technology. The pilot steers his water sports craft via two intelligent Controlgrips with Piezo technology. The drive mechanism is activated by squeezing the trigger. Applying light pressure to the green sensor accelerates the device in continuous powerful thrusts until the desired speed is reached. Propulsion is reduced by pressing the red sensor, thereby slowing down the SEABOB. If required, the craft can be brought to an immediate stop simply by releasing the trigger. Two further Piezo buttons enable the pilot to program an individual data menu. This includes the electronically-controlled setting of diving depth, operation time and additional parameters.
The central cockpit is located exactly in the driver’s field of vision. All important technical data from the engine electronics is shown accurately via the TFT colour display. It provides the pilot with information on the current driving performance and the selected power level. The accumulator charge state and the remaining operating time indicated allow you to reliably keep track of the residual capacity. Furthermore, the driver receives up-to-date information regarding his diving depth and water temperature. The programming functions of the menu can also be conveniently controlled via the TFT display.
