    Thoughts on the Nautilus CCR ???

    I'm in Cozumel with my family doing some recreational diving -- actually, right now we are bracing for Tropical Storm Dolly that is supposed to his us tonight. This morning, though, I went cave diving with German Yanez. We started talking about CCRs and he took me over to his house to look at his Nautilus CCR. I did not know anything about it. The company is owned by a Mexican engineer with all parts made in Mexico except the Scubapro first stages. It looks interesting -- one handset with all displays including pressure gauges, magnetic switches, fiberoptic cables, etc. German is their "crash test dummy" for the unit. It's an electronic CCR with a radial scrubber, apparently is rated to 650 fsw, and lists for $5000 USD. The website is Rebreather Nautilus CCR Closed Circuit Rebreather. Anyone know anything about this unit?

    The specs make it sound interesting. The price is also quite nice. I think it is a little to thick for my likeing. I get stuck enough the way it is

    The Bucket and Scrubber canister looks exactly like it was made by Steam Machines, for the Prism Topaz.

    Re: Thoughts on the Nautilus CCR ???

    Hey - it's a Prism knockoff with back mounted lungs!
    Scrubber looks Identical
    Scrubber bucket looks identical
    Tanks and valves: Identical
    Sensor mounting in the head, and inside of the head: Identical
    Setpoint controller options: Identical.

    Wonder if you can buy spares off them? I've a friend who needs a new bucket for his Prism.:)

    Considering that Peter and Sharon Readey work for the manufacturers of the Nautilus the resemblance to the Prism is probably not such a surprise.

    Re: Thoughts on the Nautilus CCR ???

    These were supposed to be in production four or five years ago. I looked into them then but only received an email telling me they would contact me when they were ready to go into production. I am still waiting for them to get back in touch. I am not aware of any out in the field beyond a prototype or two. Might be possible that they are ready to produce but I would be real shy about paying $5K to be a test dummy for a no history company.

    The bucket is the old 5.5 lbs version used in early PRISMs.
    Pete and Shas don't "work for the manufacturer".
    And indeed they've been working on the Nautilus for several years.
