    VERY RARE - K10 Hydrospeeder - WHITE - at low PRICE Seen in second tomb raider movie, the ultimate in Diver Propulsion Vehicle, the K-10 Hydrospeeder is an underwater motorcycle. This Unit was purchased from factory in 2000, and spent much of the last 10 years on display in a SCUBA shop. When not there, its been Garage kept! It's been in the water twice, fresh water both times. It uses 6 12v trolling motor batteries in series, in 2 battery boxes. It needs 5 batteries that can be purchased from boat dealer or Amazon, and potentially some o-ring replacements when presure tested.. The 6th Battery was replaced last year and charges fine. The original 36V charger for the batttery boxes is included, along with insturctional DVD and original manual. This DPV uses off the shelf parts found in any machine shop, and very easy to work on.. A great description of the K-10 can be found on 2006 Scubaboard if you google K10 Hydrospeeder (was asking $8500). This is the ultimate reef cruiser!**$2650 or offer**. St. Augustine, FL- Shipable thru freight for $220 packing + shipping. This is the lowest price I've ever seen one sell for! If you know what this is, you know the value! Will send pics on request.

    Some pictures would be a big help.

    Is this picture like it? -- I thought the ones on Tomb Raider were cooler for some reason ?

    Tom,

    Pardon me for not being "board literate" on how to place pics. It appears your point in pointing out "dumb" is to point out that you're not? Chill, and try helping before condemning.

    Think the local dive boats would mind if I bring that on board? Is there a biker bar at 2 ATA? :D

    lol Not that I've run into, but sounds like a business opportunity to me. At the very least, the potential new genre of tats would be refreshing. As for local dive boats, that would depend on the boat, I think. It's unusual enough that some wouldn't mind, just to see it operate. But it's not a drift diving vehicle, it's a reef cruiser or fresh water bottom cruiser. Search and recovery, or anything that needs to cover more bottom in a shorter amount of time. It has commercial diving use potential.

    a real shame for a comment like that to someone with only 6 posts .... i agree... although it is annoying when people dont post pics, it doesnt take more than 2 heartbeats to notice the thread starter is new to the board.


    ugh

    pretty cool article
    i happen to be off holbox last year and can tell you that if he was able to keep up with a whale shark for 15 minutes that impressive speed, never mind 3 hours. that sounds perplexing. this "tail" will be quite the piece of equipment should it be as reasonably priced as he claims..... thanks for the cool read

    If only it had 4 wheels, drive it across the sand into the water, finish the dive and drive out. It looks a little heavy for carrying.

    Actually there is a strap-on pair of inflatable kayak wheels that go with it. You can't ride it down hills, but easily pushes around like a wheel barrow. Can always add another pair.

    eddie there is very literally one on ebay right now ... but take note that the thread you posted on is 10 months cold ... so doubtful they will reply ...
    also, the guy on ebay listed it about 2 months ago for $5500 and has relisted it about 7 times and it is now down to about $3600 but looks clean ... way out of my pricerange but cool all the same
