Picture the scene: James Bond is attempting to escape from a sex-driven-villainous poker party on a jet ski, obviously, with a trail of evil, bald-cat-stroking bad guys following right behind.
There’s a blockade up ahead. What’s our protagonist going to do? Then it happens. The 007 theme music bangs on and Bond’s jet ski descends under water. It turns out it was also a submarine the whole time, and James cruises safely away, cracking open a product placement Heineken as the opening credits roll.
Bit reminiscent of The Spy Who Loved Me, innit? But here are the differences. For a start, this is a jet ski rather than a Lotus Esprit.
Secondly, and more importantly, this jet ski is actually on sale in mass to the general public – though we should mention at this point, it also looks like a children’s drawing of a swordfish. Didn’t picture that when you read the opening few paragraphs, did you?
Just because it looks like a four-year-old came up with the design though doesn’t mean this machine, named ‘The Seabreacher Sailfish’, isn’t absolutely badass.
The Seabreacher has a retractable snorkel which allows high-speed barrel roles and lets you dive for sustained periods of time. It also costs $100,000 though, so don’t expect to see them up for hire for 12 euro per hour next time you’re at the beach in Magaluf.
Seriously though, have a watch of the video below and you’ll realise how genuinely spectacular this piece of tech is. It looks like the most fun you can have in the water with your clothes on – by which we of course mean that the only thing better to do in the water than drive one of these would be to go surfing naked.
You may laugh at the design and you may question whether you’ll ever see Bond in something that looks like a tropical fish, but one watch of the edit below and we can guarantee one thing – you’re going to want to try it out for yourself.
