the underwater jetski
The DelfJet waterscooter is capable of 15 mph over the water and 7.5
mph underwater. The DelfJet is a combination of water scooter and
jetski. Its design was inspired by the fast and elegant swimming style
of dolphins. Offering extreme agility in water, the Delfjet proves
that the ultimate hydrodynamic shapes still come from nature and changes
completely the known restrictions of speed for human diving.
A control grip is used to regulate the Delfjet's speed. With its power
limited to 5 HP, the Delfjet is incredibly easy to drive and free
from any license restrictions which usually apply on jetskis. Steering
of the DelfJet is done by shifting the riders weight. If you should
happen to drop the DelfJet a cut-off switch kicks in, stopping it
immediately. The diving depth of the DelfJet can be set on the control
panel of the water scooter according to individual needs. The standard
diving depth has been pre-programmed to 2.5 meters for fun seekers
and amateur divers. Higher spec models for scuba divers can dive to
50 meters. And the professional level Black Shadow version can dive
to depths of up to 120 meters. A two-man rescue model is also available.
Apply only light pressure and the Delfjet Waterscooter will obligingly
begin to dive. The electric drive mechanism incorporated into the
Delfjet was developed to produce the ideal amount of torque with great
efficiency and the 5 horsepower waterjet engine is emission-free and
almost totally silent.
The electronic jet drive is also service and maintenance free and
power comes from rechargeable high-energy Lithium-Ion cells that provide
enough energy to run the Delfjet for an hour at full speed.
