iSpace2o, an innovative Italian startup, announces the beginning of production of the first hull of its DeepSeaker DS1 electric submersible hydrofoil vehicle. To make it happen, the team joined forces with the well known SEALENCE of William Gobbo who will supply the DeepSpeed electric jet powertrain; the Giancarlo Zema Design Group studio that will create the definitive stylistic lines; and to Blaze Performance, or the team of Formula 1 H2O who will take care of the construction of the hull and the development of the vehicle.
The DeepSeaker will be able to cruise over the water at over 30 knots and dive up to 50 meters deep with the use of mobile ballast to produce neutral buoyancy. The boat will ensure maximum safety of passengers on board and at the same time maximum respect for the surrounding environment.
The cabin is spacious enough to seat four people – a pilot and three passengers. DeepSeeker DS1 is also fitted with a new patented regeneration system for breathable oxygen extracted directly from sea water. It will be produced and marketed in two versions (DS1 and DS2) based on the number of passengers and fittings.
The technology is now mature and around the planet this kind of boats are starting to have more and more appeal. iSpace2o, thanks also to its industrial partners, has the ability to position itself at the apex of this market thanks to a high-level technological offer and a unique design, elements that are not always found in products of competitors. – Giuseppe Carusi, CEO of iSpace2o
DeepSeaker DS1 is compact in size and can be transported on a boat trailer or stowed in the garage of a yacht. It is also totally independent from support boats.
The first 10 units of the DeepSeaker have already been acquired by one of the largest international navigation groups, which will use them as a means of entertainment for the passengers of its cruise ships.
