If you have extra USD $100,000 to burn, here comes a submarine that’s been designed like a Orcinus orca white whale, allowing you to experience on how the white whale dives in deep sea.

The killer whale submarine is a two-seater which is great for you and your loved one, who’re adventurous enough to explore the deep sea. It’s not limited to using in the sea, it can even be used on rivers or lakes.

The submarine is powered by a 255-hp supercharged Rotax axial flow engine, enabling realistic behaviors such as porpoising or skyhopping. It’s capable of hydroplaning up to 50 MPH over the water’s surface and cruising up to 25 MPH while submerged.

Driving this submarine isn’t too difficult, you simply depend on the twin control levers and dual-foot pedals. The former is meant for you to articulate the whale’s pectoral fins for rolls and stealthy dives. While the latter are meant for you to control the vectored thrust of the engine.

Users are protected from water pressure under its watertight 1/2 inch-thick acrylic canopy. There are also other controls on the cockpit’s dashboard including a speedometer, tachometer, engine and air pressure gauges, and an LCD that displays live video.

The entire whale-shaped submarine comes in dimensions of 17 1/4′ L x 3 1/2′ W x 4 3/4′ H and weighs 1,450 lbs. And you can have it from Hammacher for a hefty price tag of $100,000 USD.
