A UNIQUE amphibious Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) – thought to be the only one of its kind in Mallorca – has come on the market.
With motorised, retractable, steerable wheels, the 7.1-metre Sealegs amphibious RIB is the perfect vehicle for ferrying boat passengers to and from shore without getting wet.
“Research says that Sealegs owners use their boat, on average, up to 10 times more than they officially thought,” said Lorenzo Vila, director of easyboats, who have the RIB for sale. “It’s not surprising. The clever land-water design offers great freedom with no more offshore anchoring, no more boat beaching and no wet feet. An obvious target audience is private individuals with seafront homes who can make it ashore without the vehicle/trailer/ramp rigmarole…”
In water, the RIB is driven as normal, however on approach to shore a button can be hit to deploy three retractable ‘legs.’ Down in 10 seconds, the boat can then by driven ashore, keeping passengers safe and dry.
