EGO Compact Semi Submarine

by Mark R

Last year, around summertime, I went through this phase where I was reporting on nothing but mini-submarines like the Seabreacher X, the Scubster, and the yellow submarine last July. I figured it has been has been a while since we covered another mini-sub, even though this technically isn’t a submarine.

This is not to say that the EGO semi-submarine does not travel underwater. In fact, the cockpit is always that way. However, the upper part of the boat remains above the water all the time.

This reduces the risk factor of traveling underwater, and makes it very easy to control. The company website says that “you don’t even need to know how to swim”. I say that it probably wouldn’t hurt.

The clear view gives the user a terrific view of the life aquatic, which is perfect for those that want to see fish up close without getting wet. Best of all, the EGO is eco-friendly as it is mostly electric-powered. On a 6-10 hour charge, the user is able to get about four hours worth of cruising time.

The EGO semi-submarine is made by a company called RAONHAJE, and the product’s official website does not have a price. All I have to say is: “if you have to ask, then you can’t afford it”.

It’s for people with more money than brains. If it had a little more in the way of operating time it would make a great charter fishing boat or an attraction at a tourist spot.

I’m guessing you don’t strap it to the top of the SUV to transport. It’d take 3 men and a boy to get it in/out of the water. On another site I read that it needs to be pulled from the water once a week to be cleaned since it doesn’t have the kind of paint that helps to prevent slime build up.
