Innespace Productions: Local Business Takes Flight, Underwater

Shasta EDC - Monday, June 18, 2012
Step off the dock, seal the cockpit and take the adventure of underwater flight!  At speeds of up to 40 mph, you’ll zip across open water, roll through waves and dive below the surface to see life from a fisheye view – a thrill-seeker’s dream come true.

While piloting the Seabreacher, developed by Innespace Productions, you’ll experience aquatic thrills like you’ve never known. And Shasta County Economic Development  is proud that Innespace Productions calls Shasta County home.

The Masterminds Behind Innespace Productions

Rob Innes and Dan Piazza founded Innespace Productions, a design and development company specializing in high performance submersible watercraft, in 1997. Rob is a New Zealand boat builder with fifteen year’s experience in boat design and manufacturing. He has a management degree from Auckland University and a composite engineering diploma from Unitech University. Dan Piazza is a certified machinist with over twenty years of hands-on experience in custom fabrication and engineering. He has an extensive background working on performance vehicles including race boats, hot rods and off-road vehicles.

Watercraft that Push the Limits of Aquabatics

Rob Innes and Dan Piazza founded Innespace Productions, a design and development company specializing in high performance submersible watercraft, in 1997. 

Although Innespace has been in the spotlight for several years,  public interest in their unique vessels has peaked only recently.  The versatility of the vessels makes them perfect for many climates and waterways, and the immense public appeal makes them especially suitable for marketing and promotional uses, which includes racing and demonstration events. Consequently, Innespace has expanded their production capacity to meet the increased demands of the recreation market.

Shasta County: The Preferred Business Location

Co-Owner Dan Piazza says the benefits of doing business in Shasta County are:

1.  Two lakes are located within 15 minutes of the design shop, 
2.  Permitting and Regulatory compliance allows for ease of expansion, and 
3.  Transportation via I-5 makes shipping to international clients convenient.

Dan also points out that the tax credits (Enterprise Zone, Work Opportunity Tax Credit and other federal incentives) have been a bonus for their company, allowing them to hire more staff and  grow their business. Support from Shasta County Economic Development Corporation, including assistance with the application process for these credits, has been a tremendous benefit to Innespace.

In addition to these services, the EDC has assisted Innespace with their expansion to a larger facility located off Airport Road, which they will occupy within the month.
