Bournemouth, , November, 2006 – OceanFlite (UK) has launched its unique new line of products geared toward the leisure/yacht markets. Fitted OceanFlite towable underwater vehicles (TUVs) are available for all yacht and boat owners who are seeking new entertainment experiences as well as using TUVs for underwater inspections of their vessels.

OceanFlite TUVs are unique in that they are based upon the hydrodynamic shapes of marine creatures such as dolphins and mantas. As an OceanFlite TUV is towed at almost any speed, fish, mammals, underwater fauna and seabeds can be watched in real-time via onboard mini-TV screens or entertainment systems, which are directly connected to the TUV. Through the use of these TUVs, "swimming with real dolphins" or the "what's happening beneath" experience can become a safe reality whilst staying onboard. The new range with proven technology was only available prior to selected industries. In the first days of its launch, the amount of enquiries has risen to over 250. Mark Tinger, Marketing Manager commented "Whilst we are not surprised about the amount of response, it shows that the entertainment and safety on board has by far not reached limits in the industry. It was only a logical step for OceanFlite to move into the leisure market after being asked many times by manufacturers and shipyards worldwide to make our technology available and affordable for everyone."
