A personal submarine made with composites

DeepFlight uses composite materials for its Dragon personal submarine.

Like all DeepFlight craft, the Dragon has fixed positive buoyancy, meaning that it will always naturally float back to the surface. No variable ballast system, no drop weights.

The Dragon offers the DeepFlight Dive Manager (DDM), a proprietary technology that monitors and manages critical functions. The DDM allows users to pilot the Dragon with minimal training and provides the ability to set the depth limit on any particular dive.

The Dragon is the first DeepFlight craft to offer hovering capability, allowing complete freedom to cruise alongside big animals or stop and hover over ancient shipwrecks. Quad brushless DC thrusters and an underwater lithium battery pack give you quiet, efficient operation for up to 6 hours between charges.

At 1800 kg and only 5m in length, the Dragon is able to fit on more yachts than any other submarine on the market, with little or no retrofit required.
