Incredible Killer Whale Submarine To Go Under Auction In The Netherlands

Incredible Killer Whale Submarine To Go Under Auction In The Netherlands

A submarine that looks exactly like a killer whale, and can perform aerial stunts similar to those in the movie Free Willy, is to go on auction in The Netherlands.

According to local media reports, this unique marine vehicle can reach speeds of up to 62mph and can jump over 16 feet into the air from the water.

Under the water, it can travel at 34mph, which is probably as fast as you'd ever want to go down there.

Hey, you're gonna want to take in the submarine scenery, aren't you?

This particular model is called the Seabreacher Z - for obvious reasons - and it is to go under the hammer at BVA Auctions in the Dutch city of Amersfoort with a starting price of 25,000 Euros (£22,590).

It can be viewed from 14 July, with the lucky recipient of this unusual machine to be decided on 4 August.

That gives you a good while to get your bids in, and also to ponder whether owning a submarine that looks like a large dolphin is a decision that you need to make.

It looks like a lot of fun, you've got to admit that.

The designers say that the sub has a 'dolphin-like body', which is correct, because - as every schoolboy knows - a killer whale isn't actually a whale at all.

The Seabreacher website tells us: "The Z model is the first Seabreacher with a fully retractable snorkel, allowing pilot and passenger to experience the thrill of high speed 360 degree barrel rolls.

"The Z model, which replaces the original J model, retains the friendly dolphin-style body but with much higher performance and 'aquabatic' capabilities."

Don't know about you, but whenever I buy anything I make sure to check whether it has aquabatic capabilities.

The submarine creators' website continues: "This new model will come standard with a Rotax 260hp supercharged engine, two seats, and a fully vectored thrust system.

"If you're looking for the most extreme watercraft on the market today, the Z model is definitely for you."

The sub itself was built in Mexico and possesses a 300 horsepower motor. It can also be transported with relative ease on the back of a trailer - helpful if you don't live exactly next to the sea - and is classed as a speedboat, meaning that you won't even need to get a special license in order to operate it.

What more incentive do you need?
