The SEABOB: for the water enthusiast who already has everything else

Okay, so suppose you won the lottery and were set for life. And you’re a watersports nut — you love to snorkel/freedive/scuba.

Why not get a SEABOB water sled, made by Stuttgart, Germany-based Cayago AG? You’ve most likely already bought the yacht, right? Might as well get something to have fun in the water with.

To steer the SEABOB, just shift your body weight. The F5 model weighs about 29 kilos/64 pounds, has four battery-operated speeds/power levels, and can come to a dead stop by just releasing the propulsion trigger. It has an underwater top speed of 11 km/6.8 miles per hour and a surface speed of 15 km/9.3 miles per hour, according to the company’s website.

The higher-end, 35-kilo/77-pound SEABOB F5 S has six power levels, and can go up to 15 km/9.3 miles per hour underwater and 20 km/12.4 miles per hour on the surface.

The battery on both models lasts on average about an hour, and they each have a depth rating of 40 meters/131 feet. An optional “Pilot belt system” is also available for purchase in various sizes to keep you strapped onto the SEABOB when motoring around in high speed.

The price? Now remember, you’ve won the lottery so money probably isn’t much of a problem for you, right?

The F5 model retails for 7,845 Euros/USD$8,336 before taxes, and the F5 S model retails for 10,780 Euros/USD$11,455.

If you haven’t won the lottery yet and just want to stare at more pictures of it and drool, check out the company website at
