do you think with a bit of work and tuning we could get one into the 80's?

A few thoughts you guys would ask.
Can I buy one?
Yes, Innespace is currently selling custom built versions of the Seabreacher for public sale. Each vessel is built to order. No production units are available for immediate purchase.
How much do they cost?
Price starts at US$48,000 for a standard model, up to about US$68,000 for a high performance, heavily customized version with all the options.
Do you offer financing?
Unfortunately not. Our terms are typically 30% deposit, 20% upon engine installation, 20% upon operational controls, and 30% on completion and acceptance trial.
Can I become a distributer?
Innespace is not offering exclusive distribution rights for any countries at this stage, however, shared distribution rights are available to any customer who purchases at least one custom built Seabreacher. This allows prospective distributes to become very familiar with the operation and service of the vessels as well as being able to offer demonstration rides. Exclusive distribution rights may be offered after a trial distribution period
How deep can they dive?
About 5 feet for brief durations but generally they go just a few feet below the surface in order to keep the snorkel above the water.
How fast can they go?
35-40 mph on the surface, and up to 20mph under water.
How long does it take to learn to operate?
It is surprisingly quick to pick up the basic operation of the Seabreacher and learn to navigate on the surface. Prolonged dives and other tricks take a little longer to master, but most pilots are proficient in a couple of days.
What happens if I dive too deep?
Because the Seabreacher is positively buoyant, it needs speed in order to dive, which means the engine needs to be running, and the engine needs fresh air to breathe. The moment you dive too deep, the engine's air supply is cut off and the engine immediately loses power; therefore, it pops back to the surface. Sometimes it will pop up backwards if you try and dive too deep and too steep.
Can they sink?
No, the hull is constructed with enough flotation that it will always remain buoyant and level, even if the cockpit and engine bay are fully flooded. The water level in the cockpit would not exceed mid-waist level in such a situation, so water could be easily pumped out and the vessel refloated.
Can they operate in the ocean or surf?
They have been designed to operarate in salt water as well as fresh water and are designed to handle moderate ocean conditions. We do not recommend that novice operators operate them in surf or rough ocean conditions.
How do you launch them?
They can be launched at regular boat ramps from an optional custom-built trailer with no more difficulty than launching a conventional boat.
Do they leak?
The cockpit and engine bay are kept totally watertight with pneumatic aircraft seals that inflate. If the pilot neglects to inflate the seals, there can be minor leaks, but any water in the boat is automatically pumped out via the automatic bilge pumps.
Are they scary or claustrophobic to operate?
The ride can be as mild or wild as you wish. An experienced pilot can give passengers a scary ride if that's what they're looking for. Most people find the cockpit to be surprisingly open feeling due to the large panoramic canopy and view ports. If a pilot or passenger feels claustrophobic, it is possible to operate the Seabreacher at full speed on the surface with the canopy in its open position
Do they require a support boat?
We strongly recommend that a support boat is present whenever you operate a Seabreacher. This is not as much for the Seabreacher but more to help keep other boaters or water users from coming too close to the vessel when it is operating. We also recommend having radio communication between the vessel and chase boat as an added precaution. We continue to use a support boat every time we go out, even after ten years of operation.
Are they Coastguard approved?
The Seabreacher J (Recreational model) is approved for recreational boating and had been granted exemption from certain safety standards due to its unique configuration. It had the exact same classification as a conventional Jetski or Seadoo, and can be easily registered in most states. The Seabreacher ARL will be sanctioned by the APBA in its own special events class, but is not approved for recreational public use.
Do I need a license to operate them?
No, but a good understanding of boat operation and safety is recommended. We offer comprehensive training to any customer who purchases a custom built Seabreacher.
Can I register or insure them?
Yes, they can be registered as a conventional inboard boat and we can help you with finding insurance coverage for your Seabreacher.
Do you sell them outside the USA?
Yes, we have built and delivered Seabreachers as far away as Korea and the United Arab Emirates. Shipping cost estimates are available upon request.
How much does it cost to ship a Seabreacher?
A Seabreacher and trailer fit inside a standard 20 foot shipping container, Shipping cost is typically between US$3000 and US$6000. We can provide you with a more accurate shipping quote to most destinations.
How can I get involved in Racing them?
Once you've purchased your own Seabreacher, you will be invited to participate in club racing events that will begin in 2009 here in th US. Racing will be available to both Seabreacher J and ARL models. Participants will be encouraged to seek their own sponsors and modify their vessels for competitive use.
Can I make money with one?
There are many ways in which you can profit from owning a Seabreacher due to their unique nature and mass appeal. Like us, you can perform media demonstrations, attend shows and events, gain corporate sponsorship, and even lease your vessel out for film and commercial work. We can help provide you with some of these opportunities. Soon, we hope to see Seabreacher Rental and Training operations pop up throughout the world, as well as sanctioned racing events. All these operations, will provide a good source of revenue from owning a Seabreacher.
Can I rent one?
Not at this stage, but many of our customers have expressed interest in starting Seabreacher rental operations, so there may be a Seabreacher rental facility near you in the upcoming future
