A lot of cool photos and videos have come across my desk lately, but this one made me drop everything else to watch: the aHqua2O Mini-Sub: The Ultimate Play Toy.


The boats.com team spotted this cool mini-sub at the Cannes Boat Show, and I want one.

It took me a few tries to parse the name, but I finally got it: "Ah-Qua." As in ahhh, and aqua blue water, all rolled in one word. What could be better?

Imagine cruising at 6 knots up to 50 feet around Narragansett Bay, or Biscayne Bay, or Cane Garden Bay (while I'm dreaming), encased in a cozy cockpit, dry as the proverbial bone, observing passing marine life without joining its food chain. As an added bonus, the thing will do 14 knots at the surface.

Here's a video to whet your appetite... and let us know how you plan to use yours, once you add it to your fleet.
