IAQUA is changing the watersport market!
SEA / DIVE SCOOTERS from 4.999€ (incl. VAT)
IAQUA SEADART price list & facts sheet
IAQUA SEADART ist the newest model generation (from 4/2020. What is new:
- tripple water proofbattery safety concept
- safety sensor hard - & software update
- the bumpers have now a softer finish
Those new features make the IAQUA SEADART the safest Li-ion powered water sport device on the market! A waterproof battery system based on a single barrier is a potential danger, regardless of water ingress sensors. Once salt water comes near a Li-ion Batterie you will have a problem! Sensors can only warn you. Check our SAFTY INFORMATION section for more infos.
COMPARE specifications between the IAQUA models and against the competition
We compare main SPECIFICATIONS of the IAQUAmodels : basic model (SEADART FUN), mid range model (SEADART MAX+), and top model (SEADART PRO) witch each other. We compare also the relevant best copetitor's model (basic, mid range, or top model) against the IAQUA's model (colored bar).
With respect to the competitor we do not name the brand in the above comparison. Please take into account that DIVE Scooters have additional features, that have to considered wehn comparing brands. For example IAQUA SEADART MAX+ and PRO models have integrated LED SUB LIghts. CAYAGO / SEABOB offers an integrated camera modul as an option. AMAZEA Scooters offer an exchangable batterie.
We want to point out differences of the comarable main properties!
The battary properties (brand & type) are a preconditon for possible max. power ratings. A high power output always consumes more engery and depending on the battery cell, this high power output might be only available for shoort time and may limit the lifetime of the battery! All dive scooters at high speed / under full load (driver'sweight) habve a high current draw / power consumption. The thermal stress (developing heat )is the limiting factor. IAQUA Scooters work within their intended safe limits and take a optimized batterie life time into account. In the comparison we do not compare prototype scooters - ,show off models, special rescue versions, or devises with a short power burst function. How long will the fun last? How much power do you have on board? Dive scooters with hig speeds but low run time can not be compared. Find out about Capacity in the next tab.
IAQUA features and pricing in DETAIL
- IAQUA basic model: SEADART FUN (4.999€)
- IAQUA mid range model: SEADART MAX+ (7.499€)
- IAQUA top model: SEADART PRO(10.999€)
All off the variations share the same dimensions, approx. the same weight, come with a regular charger and an approved flight box as packing.
Let's check out the features in Detail:
Simply a 100% FUNpackage at half of the price!
- low price
- fast speed and long runtime
SEADART FUNis the affordable basic version and already one of the most powerfull scooters on the market! ! IAQUA dedicated great specs. for the the basic model range, in order to be on eyesight of the competitors mid range models, but cost approx. half the price! IAQUA basic models hase almost the same capacity compare to IAQUA mid, and top models (SEADART MAX+ & PRO). This means they have the same long time! Competitor's basic model only offers half of the battery cpacity compared to their mid range & top model. If you prefer to carry approx. 6 KG less weight and accept a rather low rin time and low powerthen go for the competitor!
With the IAQUA SEADART FUN you receive real FUN complete package. Price compared to other premiuum brands is cut oin half! Draw backs are the the limited colour choice and the basic model has no extra features.
SEADART MAX+ is clearly the TOYMASTER's choice! It comes with higher specs. and attractive features. The price is still the best on the market!
- SAMSUNG battery cells that enable higher speed
- SUB LED LIGHTS
- CARBOB kit - real CARBON appliocations
- 7 special colours
SAMSUNG cells: The SAMSUNG cells deliver high curent output. Hence the mid range model SEADART MAX+ has the full power punch, speeds up like a sports car, and the SAMSUNG can handle the extra power and offer best runtime and lifetime.
SUB LIGHTS: How to tell cometitors appart from in IAQUA? If you see a light it's an IAQUA! You can turn the LED high power lights on and off. With lights you can be seen by others, even during day light! Just like it is obligatory for motorcycles, we strongly recommend to switch on lights during day time and increase safety!
The Sub Light LEDs are very powerful and enable you to simply use the SEADART in pitch dark. You will light up the ocean in front of you! We did test night dives in Thailand and on Mallorca. It was stunning to light up the maritime sceenery. You feel like a space ship in 0 gravity ... an unforgettable feeling!
With sub lights you double up fun time, because now you can explore oceans also during the twilight zone or even at night!
CARBON KIT will increase luxury appearance a big deal! Think about sport and luxury cars. Carbon is not only cutting down weight and improving stiffness, it simply looks incredibly cool! SEADART MAX+ have a carbon display housing and the jet outlet bezel is also 100% carbon.
When IAQUA is applying carbon its real carbon! Other brands apply vinyl wrap,dip in wrap, and even apply real carbon fiber on top of the original plastic body! Well, there is only one real way to apply carbon. The part is a carbon part with carbon benefits like increasement in stiffness and less weight. Only then it is real carbon and will create the stunning look!
SPECIAL COLORS are another striking difference in appearance. IAQUA MAX+ models provide a free choice of 7 colors. This includes colors that are only reserved for mid range line (Corsica Orange and Bahamas Blue), and also metallic colors at no extra costs!
SHARK GUARD (this feature is not available for EU models. It is a simple magnetic field that is generated by an electric pulse that runs through a wire assembly. . No guarantee that it keeps sharks away;-)
IAQUA SADART PRO is the top model! It is packet with all above features and the key difference is that its complete hull (upper and lower body) is from genuine carbon fiber! Naturally the SEADART PRO is thethe winner in appearance. Own the fastest and most advanced div e scooterin the world!
The speed of a full carbon IAQUA dive scooter is higher, because less weight means more speed! Also the stiff body improves agility and planing. Is there anything that can be compared to an IAQUA SEADART PRO? Well, there are carbon dive scooters, but most of them are only scuba dive scooters. CAYAGO laminates real CARBON on top their regular SEABOB scooters. Its real carbon applyed to the upper plastic hull. The lower hull remains "plastic" look. It look great, but its just an extra carbon layer that actualy adds weight and costs double the price of a regular SEABOB. The IAQUA has a true/ genuine light wight CARBON construction that includes the lower hull. This makes the light SEADART PRO much stiffer and better performing with cool CARBON defuser, like a PROfessional race car.
Now you know the differences between the IAQUA moels. The model name may indecate the state of technical Evolution, Some models are only availabel in selected regions. SEAJET, STINGRAY, IAQUA NEO, IAQUA EON, IAQUA ONE, IAQUA 650c, IAQUA 720s, IAQUA 720, IAQUA 770, IAQUA 900 are descriptions for partly discontinued versions.
You can be sure that TOYMASTER and connected dealers is always supplying the newest IAQUA model. If you order your IAQUA in advance it is possible that it will contain newer technology compared to units in stock. IAQUA is fast in evolution and developement. Others apply a face lift and new colouras. IAQUA surprices with real innovation!
The IAQUA Story
IAQUA consists of a young team of international engeneers and designers they center around British founders. THe key to sucess is that the founders are one of the biggest car part supplyers in the world with professiona developement and production facilkities in Shengzhen China and Thailand.
What was the reason for them to enter the water sport market? Well, the founders simply where "pissed off" by the very high prices and rather bad quallity and aftersales services in water toy bussines.
We were the first authorized SEABOB dealer, that was affected by IAQUA in our off season market in Thailand.
Since 2013 we are exhibiting at international boat-shows in Thailand. 2016 we were invited to the VIP KATA Rocks Boat Show in Phuket, in order to present our SEABOB dive scooters for trial and purchase.
Well, we were stunned when we witnessed the debut of a IAQUA! Back then it seemed like a Concept from a bunch of international enthusiasts. But we already felt and figured that this team of young man was ment to stay and redefine the Dive Scooter / DPV with modern electronics and stunning new features, at much lower Price tag.
Only few months later at the Thailand Yacht Show IAQUA presented at the sunnseeker stand several, way more detailed units, but also a technical fully working unit!
We knew that next Thai season it would not make sense to present the then obviousely overpriced SEABOB in Thailand anymore ... especially in the light of the lacking service support from CAYAGO (remark: it took untill 2019 to establish finaly a SEABOB service in Thailand).
2018/19 we were invited to the official presentation of the finished IAQUA dive scooter product at the famos CATCH Beach Club.
We had the chance to test IAQUA dive scooter models ONE & NEO (discontinued) . Numerous international dealers were present. Everybody was stunned of the professional way the new product was presented to the public.
IAQUA is a big high tech player in Shenzhen China. The background is impressive, because IAQUA is a branch of one of the biggest automotive part manufacturers in the world. This means that IAQUA products follow high automotive quality standards, and they know how to produce reliable quality at low price in China.
IAQUA produces genuine industrial products. This is why quality is high, and costs are low! Also the innovation and production speed follow car industry bench marks.
Maybe now you understand why IAQUA will be a game changer, and they just started to revolutionize water sport products.
The IAQUA team consists of international engineers that are proud to work and produce in high tech Shenzhen. Product development and innovation take place where highest technology standards are given. We all must understand that in many aspects this is not any more only the western world! Where does your smartphone come from? Who builds the best TV's , Where do car makers purchase technology?
IAQUA general Information
IAQUA dive scooters are build with simplicity and innovation in mind. All modules are mounted neatly on a tray/platform. Crucial parts (like the handles to hold on and the carry handles) are metal supported (marine grade aluminum). Also in terms of thermal design no compromises were made.
ECU (the brain and power switching center) is milled aluminum and will transport heat very effectively into the air or water. Many competitors like dive scooters, electric surf boards, and other electric powered machines suffer severely from thermal problems! This causes the devices to cut down power, stop, or even get damaged.
MOSFETS are the most sensitive parts of any modern electric driven vehicle. They will transfer battery power into motion, by supplying a precisely triggered frequency controlled high current to the electric motor windings. This high power switching technology is a critical process to manage and control! Most manufacturers rely on radio shack parts or have them customized. IAQUA develops critical parts from scratch, applying latest technologies and up to date components.
MOSFETS need to be cooled down constantly or they will simply burn. It is essential that a manufacturer is able to control thermal dynamics and constructs a technology that safely enables and controls high currents and excessive heat development. It takes the best available parts and most up to date technology in order to compete in that segment. Constant technology revision and improvement is the only way to stay on top of performance, reliability, and also product safety. Watercooled parts are not a solution if a device is actually used on top of the water! Many compeditor's technical design is faulty, because on top of the water (when planing) the technology is partly not water cooled! The technical design must take the harsh conditions of marinetime use into account!
IAQUA not only has the resources and access to the highest technology standards, they also have the engineers that understand how modern technology works and can be applied in an industrial sense. This is what makes the IAQUA DPV unique on the market, because it is the high tech industry discovering and understanding the water sport market!
Many "garage start ups" in the dive scooter market will suffer from IAQUA entering the market. There have been massive attempts to keep IAQUA from selling on the main watersports markets / EU market. However, the users will profit in high quality, innovative, state of the art technology, and affordable products.We can only encurage the user and the dealer to check if CAYAGO claims are correct and backed by a judges decision! Anything else is just a unfair trade tool and customer deceiving strategy.
It is our job to confirm that products meed our standards. IAQUA DPV does, that is why we sell IAQUA!
Dive Scooter History
In dive scooter history there have been many types of scooters. What pops into mind are torpedo like shaped machines that were used in James Bond movies in the 1970's.
Those scooters were already battery driven, with a propeller or jet drive / housed propeller (impeller), handles, and some sort of switches and indicators to turn on/off and adjust speed.
For waterlevel use and snorkeling there was a very common gasoline driven snorkel scouter in the 1980's. Many clients report that they actually used that water sled when they were young. Besides that there are numerous devices that run on top of the water and can also pearce through the waves.
Dive industry produced numerous electric driven scooters that had improved hydrodynamic efficiency, small size, exchangeable batteries, and even good looking colorful design in mind (SCUBAPRO, SEADOO, Yamaha, and many more).
A device called "DelfhJet" represented a very powerful version of such a dive scooter and contained first modern and crazy expensive space technology Lithium Ion batteries. Unfortunately the company had no success and was nearly bankrupted. CAYAGO (Rotinor GmbH) has purchased the DELFJET leftovers, gave the DELFJET a facelift and gave it another name (SEABOB).
SEABOB F7 received in approx. 2007 the last upgrade. SEADOO and YAMAHA also redesigned their scooters and switched to LI-ION technology. The SEABOB 5.12 was very heavy but very fast also. SEABOB Rave Jet, ACS, VX2, 4.12 and F7 where all variations of the original SEABOB 5.12./ (original DELFJET). Some models had more power or exchangeable batteries (actually nobody used this feature much).
CAYAGO (the SEABOB company) managed to reduce weight further by switching to the industrial standard "18650" battery cell type in approx. 2011. The hull was still foam filled and came in modern plastic design, similar to seadoo jet skies. There are few aluminum frame parts. The so called "F5" series is up to this day the only product of CAYAGO. F5S and F5SR are rather derivations of the F5 that contain the full amount of battery cells, hence more power and capacity. With introduction of the SEABOB F5SR the integrated camera was also presented.
SEABOB F5/F5S/F5SR share the same base construction. CAYAGO was very successful with this product, because it was simply fun and much lighter than the former 65 KG F7. However, constant technical draw backs were also part of the new F5 series history, and it is not an easy task to provide service all over the world. Main problem was that a SEABOB could not be entirely diagnosed/repaired off shore.
Neither CAYAGO, IAQUA, or SEADOO (and many other brands more) invented the dive scooter (propelled or semi jet driven DPV). The dive scooters we see today (IAQUA, SEABOB, AMAZEA …) are simply the result of combining modern technology into a more or less hydrodynamic hull!
IAQUA redesigned the existing Technology, used 2018 electronics and made the dive scooter not only even better with now state of the Art technology, but also a lot less expensive. Genuine experienced industrial production is the reason for not only improved technology but also reasonable prices! … especialy when compared to competitors with outdated 1.0 technical design.
When IAQUA intorduced the Dive Scooter (2017/18 models), CAYAGO and others simply ignored first reports from dealers about the interesting competitor that has the potential to make competitors obsolit.
In Sept. 2018 CAYAGO applied in German court (DÜSSELDORF) for a so called preliminary injunction (PI), that suggested that IAQUA shall not import their STINGRAY model into EU. Seeming to suddenly fear IAQUA, CAYAGO's first move was to sell CAYAGO GmbH (Austria) to the quickly new founded CAYAGO TEC Gmbh Germany.
CAYAGO claimed that IAQUA is simply a Chineese online seller that is intending to sell a SEABOB copy into EU.
That was basically the content of the PI application / the Picture drawn in front of Düsseldorf Court. Furthermore CAYAGO proclaimed the good reputation and solid CAYAGO history. There where sworen statements and questionable evedence that supposed to prove that IAQUA simply copied the SEABOB. CAYAGO did not mention that they actualy have been selling the barely altered DELFJET. Also the F5 design series was ON PURPOSE very close to the original DELFJET / SEABOB F7 design, in order to be reconized by the customer. That means that the F5 design was not new in the first place ... but how should a Judge know? In our opinion the dive scooter design was defined rather from James Bond movies than CAYAGO.
Same old (2011) F5 series was celebrated at GERMAN BOOT 2020 (biggest maritime trade show and at the same time CAYAGO main stage for inventions).
However, the German court granted the PI. . IAQUA reacted by simply altering the design (2019 DELFJET) in order to be even more distinctive and advanced.
IAQUA could have legaly defended their "STINGRAY". Resulting CAYAGO claims during PALMA bpoatshow 2018 a Spanish Court even decided it is NOT a SEABOB design copy, CAYAGO lost the case! However, IAQUA apparently prefers changing the design faster and less cost effective than figting a never ending legal case in complecated slow EU courts.
Important to know is that IAQUA never agreed with CAYAGO that the STINGERAY design was a copy, let alone that a Court came to that final conclusion. IAQUA simply agreed to the courts PRELIMINARY opinion and had the case closed. From that moment STINGRAY design was not available in EU. In reality it has been discontinued already in mid 2019.
Never the less, IAQUA filed for a so called anulliation of the CAYAGO F5 community design, since it lacks to be a new design ( DELFJET, SEABOB 5.12,m F7 and many similar designs were first!).
All the IAQUA STINGRAY models in the EU (none where officialy sold into the EU besides approx. 10 Units to Spain) and all the STINGRAY that were imported by dealers, are NOT affected by the GERMAN PRELIMINARY decision against IAQUA.
An IAQUA STINGRAY is perfectly legal in EU. The Spanish STINGRAYS have been imported legaly BEFORE the CAYAGO claim, and the court in Spain did not follow the GERMAN preliminary decision.
You may wonder why we explain this IP battle in Detail. Well, it is simply unbelivable how a better, more advanced, and demanded product can be blocked in EU if skilled (Swiss) lawyers lay out an actually anti competitative legal strategy, with the aim to stop a competitive brand. On top that happens on Costs of local delers that legaly imported the product!
CAYAGO is furthermore attacking dealers, distributors, and IAQUA, claiming that even the changed design is a "copy". The design is registered and was rated by 7 different IP lawyers as 90 % probability of not infringing design rights.
Also CAYAGO is claiming that technical patets are beiing infringed. It is behind a normal persons understanding eactly what comon technology supposed to infringe on a dive scooter? Nothing on a DPV like a SEABOB is revolutionary new!
Important News: The case against TOYMASTER (CAYAGO - IAQUA) was dismissed by the criminal court of PALMA!
The FINAL JUDGEMENT (download) CAYAGO vs IAQUA contains a resolution with a clear argumentation / only final judgement of an EU court! This is the only court that has actualy took into account all the evedence, heared BOTH sides. The judge permitted a CAYAGO inforced witness (a copetitive dealer) and several physical inspections of the IAQUA STINGRAY model by a CAYAGO appointed specialists! Never the less, the case was dismissed and products have to be returned.
IAQUA (TOYMASTER as an importer of IAQUA ) was proven NOT GUILTY!
Water sport industry is changing, and we believe that all kind of water toys will be revolutionized and will benefit in modern technology and advantages of industrialized production. This will result in lower Prices and more reliable products. This is called technical Evolution and free (!)market economy
