Yamaha Seascooter 500Li Review

With this in your hands, diving and underwater exploration is easier. You enjoy longer, yet better expeditions underwater.

The Yamaha diving scooter 500 Li can reach water depths of up to 40 meters. Its battery is eco-friendly too and a full charge can power you for up to 90 minutes.

It charges for only 7 hours. The 500 Li spots a battery level indicator so that the diver can with ease estimate the running time. Divers can spend more time underwater by using less energy and focusing on the interesting things underwater.

Aside all of these, the new Yamaha 500 Li scooter has a GoPro mount for action-packed underwater shots and ballast weights! You can bring home very special holiday videos and share your underwater experiences with everyone.


The build of the 500Li is far superior to what I have seen so far.
