ToysHigh Performance Toy - Seabob F5S
The Seabob F5 S is the ultimate sea vessel for intense amusement and adventure. One of the best features of the Seabob F5 S is its weight. Despite being only 34 KGs, the device has a very powerful engine and records high performance. Interestingly, you do not even require a driving license when out driving the Seabob F5 S as it allows a smooth electrical drive. Additionally, the technology used in Seabob F5 S is environment friendly.
The device has emission-free drive technology ensuring that it is very ecological. The designer installed one of the best power systems in the market, the E-Jet Power System, which gives the vessel the needed power for that ultimate and intense fun and adventurous experience. The system works with the concept of water displacement. The system sucks in water forcefully, by the rotating impeller, and then pushes it out in the channel under very high pressure ensuring that the vessel accelerates at a very fast rate. The E-Jet Power system is superior due to the fact that it needs very little energy to release power. In addition to this, you get to feel all this power without causing any harm to the environment due to the electro-technology used.
It goes without saying that the Seabob F5 S will give you the ultimate driving pleasure. You will feel both the warm sun and cool breeze caressing your skin as you drive across the water. There are no boundaries with this vessel. It is best for people who love speed and intense fun. To further let you fall in love with the Seabob F5 S, you will be able to use any gear and still feel the power!
Apart from the high performance, Seabob F5 S has a beautiful and stylish design. The water sports vehicle was designed and manufactured with top grade materials. The designer did not compromise on the quality of any part of the vehicle. The materials used are water resistant so you do not have to worry about causing a splash! The combination of high technology and classy design makes this vehicle a favourite to many. What a great toy! The next time you are in search of a super yacht hire option, ask our agents if there is a Seabob on board!
GeneralLuxury EscapesCruise The Reef On This Super Yacht
Just one look at Silentworld and you will understand why it is among the most highly rated super yacht hire options in Australia. The vessel might appear soft and delicately designed, but its performance is unmatched. Any skipper will tell you that this yacht can shift gears faster and more naturally than the blink of an eye. This super yacht hire option, owned by the same group that established and runs the Silentworld Foundation, is used for both charter and for marine archaelogy expeditions.
It is exciting that the foundation is planning an exploration cruise of the reefs off Bundaberg in south Queensland! The cruise will pass through Kenn reef and Cato reef and guests might just see some of the wreckages that happened along the reefs! Super yacht hire on Silentworld is not just a way of enjoying and relaxing, but also a great opportunity to learn as all its excursions have a purpose.
The yacht can comfortably host 12 guests and was designed to withstand different conditions. Due to this, it can be used for long cruises. If you have ever wanted to cruise the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, then this is the super yacht hire for you. The zero speed stabiliser used helps the yacht anchor at almost all places.
Best suited for exploring remote places, the super yacht hire can also be used for an exploration of Whitsundays. The captain of the yacht, Michael Gooding, also involved in the design of the super yacht hire, is well knowledgeable of the super yacht hire capabilities. He recommends cruising in remote areas where many other yachts are not able to go.
According to Gooding, a tour on Silentworld should include a tour of Bait Reef, which is on the edge of Coral Sea. The area is especially exciting for divers as it has several swim-throughs. Each cruise also has diving and swimming equipment that can be used to explore the underwater caves and coral gardens. This yacht is definitely one of the standouts for cruising the Great Barrier Reef. To see some other great options, visit our Luxury Boat Hire Whitsundays category.
