Okay, so it looks more like a dark mustard. The C-Quester 2 and C-Quester 3 submersibles from U-Boat Worx are like a Smart Car for the ocean. They’ll be shown at the Monaco Yacht Show 2008. The two-person C-Quester 2 is designed to be a new toy for megayachts. In other words a plaything for the filthy rich. The three-person C-Quester 3 can be used by seaside hotels and resorts so guests can have some fun.
Each features a safety buoy, air conditioning, underwater communication, altimeter, sonar, and optional video cameras and tracking systems. The electric C-Questers can even dive up to a depth of 100 meters and they run on a Lithium-Ion battery. The first C-Quester 3 will be available at the end of this year with more scheduled for next spring. Unfortunately drivers have to be trained as a submersible pilot before using. And since there’s no four seater, you won’t see the Beatles while you’re out and about, but maybe a Blue Meanie or two.
