Delfino "Dolfin Waterkart" Gas Powered Divers Transport Boat

About

Made in Italy in the 1960s as the Delfino, these were marketed in the US as the Dolfin Waterkart. Shark like in design, they could propel a diver out to a remote reef, eliminating long and tiring swims. And what a design....! Made by the Italian motorcycle company, Mival, the Delfino was sleek, aerodynamic, and stylish. The hollow painted fiberglass body creating a constant float and completely enclosed the hydrojet motor (no external propellors). The motor is untested, but appears to be complete and ready to run! However, as a futuristic sculpture, it is unsurpassed.
