DeepFlight Super Falcon Mark II
Space may be the final frontier, but there is a great deal of Earth itself that we have yet to explore. The ocean is a treasure trove, so why not dive deep? DeepFlight has created a top-tier personal submersible, the Super Falcon Mark II. As well as uncovering never-before-seen wonders; the Falcon also allows you to fly below the ocean’s surface and perform barrel rolls with dolphins, spy-hop with whales and soar through the sea in comfort, style and safety. When operating at depths of up to 120 meters, safety is paramount, and the Super Falcon Mark II was designed with safety also as top priority. What’s different about the Super Falcon is that the sub remains positively buoyant and no ballast is used to descend. The Falcon also has auto return to the surface to provide exceptional levels of safety. The hull design was crafted around the pilot, with a low frontal area and lightweight propriety pressure. Built for yachts, the Super Falcon Mark II allows embarking and disembarking on the surface, much like a yacht tender. At 5.9 meters in length, 2.7-meters wide when wings are deployed, 1.4 meters when folded, and 1.6-meters high, the Falcon will fit well on a superyacht; she weighs 1,818 kilograms. She’s also environmentally savvy. A high-efficiency brushless DC drivetrain and underwater lithium-iron-phosphate battery pack power the fast, quiet and clean sub. Super Falcon Mark II cruises between two and six knots and with a 40v system and low-electric signature, she won’t harm marine life or nearby swimmers. Super Falcon Mark II has a payload of 230 kilograms or two people.

Dubbed as “the luxury PWC,” an icebox under the seat is able to store beverages and food while you take it out for a spin and a waterproof luggage box can store towels and other dry items. The Wet Rod also will offer an array of customization options, including choice of wood and carbon fiber inlays, paint, a sound system, a chrome engine dress-up kit, GPS navigation and more.
