Sealegs is consistently at the forefront of new innovations, enhancing the versatility and ease in which marine-oriented activities can occur.
Sealegs, the world leader in amphibious boats, pioneered a new commercial segment in the marine market.
Sealegs developed and patented a system to drive boats in and out of the water. The system consists of motorized, retractable and steerable wheels which are fitted to specially designed boats to give users a fully integrated, turn-key package.
The Sealegs system works by having powerful motoried wheels which give a user variable speed of 0-10km/h (forward and reverse) powered by an on-board power-pack.
A Sealegs boat can be driven from a storage location, down a boat ramp or beach and into the water – all with the occupants staying in the boat and remaining completely dry!. Once in the water, the Sealegs wheels are easily retracted into the “UP” position and are completely out of the water. The boat is then driven and used as normal. When approaching land, the Sealegs wheels are lowered into the “DOWN” position whilst still moving in the water.
It is then simply a matter of trolling towards the beach and the Sealegs powerful motorised wheels touch the bottom and drive the boat up onto land. The occupants can then disembark, totally dry and safe.
The Sealegs system utilizes all submersible components and is Salt Water ready.
Sealegs has proven its amphibious system in over 40 countries and delivered over 900 boats. The technology has been employed by rescue, navy, commercial and recreational users in the most demanding environments.
In order to continue expanding the company realized it needed to enable existing boat builders as the market demands numerous models & sizes to accommodate the thousands of marine applications performed by a boat.
The vision of the company is to deliver amphibious capability to as many of these applications as possible thus the need to partner with existing boat builder and focus on its technology.
