SUB MODELS

3 PERSON SPORTSUB

    

SportSub is our entry-level swim-in 3 person sub. It seats two people side-by-side, or three with the pilot front and center and a passenger on either side behind. It provides a roomy cockpit and generous view ports. Every occupant can see forward through the front windows and down through the dashboard windows. In addition, the two domed windows on each side provide wide-angle views looking up, down, and even behind the sub.

SportSub comes standard with many advanced systems such as Fly-By-Wire Joystick, Electronic Buoyancy Control, and Electrical Systems Monitor. The only things you'll need to operate your sub are air tanks, pressure regulators, and a battery charger!

Optional equipment such as Lights, Ultrasonic Communications, and Expanded Air Supply systems can all be added to make SportSub operations even more sophisticated. Ideally these options are specified at the time of manufacture but it is possible to retrofit a basic model with any options.

All SportSub models put safety first and come equipped with numerous backup systems. Please read our SportSub Technologies document for a more complete explanation of the SportSub’s systems and features.

ResortSub comes standard with many features that are options on our entry level subs, such as the Auto-Depth Control System which includes Auto-Hover, a built-in SONAR, Fly-By-Wire Joystick, Electronic Buoyancy Control, and Electrical Systems Monitor. Optional equipment such as Lights, Ultrasonic Communications and a Percix dive computer are also available. Ideally these options are specified at the time of manufacture but it is possible to retrofit a basic model with any options.
