The latest from Graham Hawkes is a Self-Pilot Personal Submarine

DeepFlight introduced a new type of personal submarine at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show: DeepFlight Dragon, an all-electric, compact, lightweight personal submarine to explore down to 400 ft. (120m). At 3,968 pounds (1,800 kg) and under five feet (1.5 m) in height, the Dragon is less than half the weight of competing submarines and readily fits into existing yacht garages or deck areas. Like all DeepFlight personal submarines, the Dragon is positively buoyant, meaning the craft automatically floats to the surface. And the Dragon is the first DeepFlight craft to use vertical thrust, thus enabling a hover capability.

Length    15.7 ft. (4.8m)
Height    4.9 ft. (1.5 m)
Width    6.8 ft. (2.1m)
Depth    400 ft. (120m)
Crew    2
Payload    507 lbs
Air Weight    3968 lbs
