Imagine the thrill of seamlessly gliding across the ocean and inland waterways then effortlessly transitioning from land to water and back again
Twenty one years ago a small New Zealand company had a dream to simplify boating – their answer was the development then subsequent commercialisation of amphibious technology for the marine sector. Over 20 years, and 1700 delivered craft later, Sealegs continue to innovate in this marketplace.
Back in 2004 the first craft comprised of an aluminium hulled rigid inflatable boat (RIB) fitted with a patented amphibious enablement kit – the Sealegs Amphibious Enablement System (AES) – the result being the first commercially available Sealegs amphibious craft.
Today the Sealegs range spans 10 separate models including a range of all-aluminium cabin and centre-console models as well as their ever popular range of alloy-hulled rigid inflatables.
Blurring the lines between land and water, amphibious craft make accessing our oceans and lakes seamless enabling the user the ultimate flexibility to come ashore at will to explore areas that before now were often inaccessible. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, an adrenaline junkie, or someone who simply loves to explore, a Sealegs amphibious craft offers an unparalleled experience.
From humble beginnings Sealegs have continued to innovate and expand. Today their range spans from their 3.8-metre ‘electric’ (on-land drive system) amphibious tender through to their range-topping luxury 12-metre cabin RIB.
Continual developments have seen the range extend to multiple commercial applications from search and rescue to firefighting to coastguard operations and on water policing. The tourism sector has also welcomed this unique technology and vessel to facilitate easy and comfortable guest transfers from larger craft to shoreline locations in an ever-increasing number of remote areas.
So, what are the benefits of this proven technology… let’s dive in and explore some of the latest features that make these amphibious wonders a must-have for today’s modern adventurer.
