The Platypus

The dream of a boat able to navigate both on and under the surface

The Platypus is a revolutionary nautical concept able to navigate on surface or under water, allowing a totally new experience to explore the seas, rivers, and lakes.



The problem of plastic pollution, particularly in our oceans, is worldwide. We consider at Platypus Craft that the source of the problem is partly alongside the coastline, in shallow waters. The Platypus is a perfect exploration tool to detect, explore and geolocate macro waste and also biodiversity.


The Platypus is the ideal craft to allow anybody to discover underwater world. You don’t need to be an experienced diver, Platypus is perfect for anyone to explore large areas of shallow waters without any limit of air or time. It is definitely the must have for tourism in the next decades! The Coast Explorer is offering all features expected for a touristic purpose, proposed in electric or gas power.


Today, the yachting world has to choose between tender or toy. With Platypus, we offer a 2 in 1 boat, a craft able to transport guests with an amazing style or transform in a few seconds in a submarine toy affordable to anyone. The Platypus Yachting Edition is designed for yachtmen in electric or gas power.


Underwater work is growing worldwide. Professionnals need a craft providing the features of a boat, a mobile exploration platform AND a working platform underwater. Here is the Platypus Pro Edition, perfect for work, survey & maintenance in shallow waters.
