Sealegs begins licensing its amphibious drive system to boat builders worldwide

•, By Mike Hanlon
 Already the world's largest amphibian manufacturer, Sealegs' first licensee under the "Powered by Sealegs" scheme is Dubai-based ASIS Boats, one of the world's top three manufacturers of Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs). Sealegs current technology is suitable for boats up to 2.5 tonnes (2500 kg), but the company will launch a system suitable for boats up to 6.5 tonnes (6500kg) in June.
Sealegs boats have until now been based around high performance RHIBs that can be landed anywhere and driven at speeds up to 8 km/h (5 mph) on land. Now that capability will be extended to much larger boats, significantly reducing the hassle of launching and retrieving boats up to 12 meters (36 ft).

ASIS Boats has a dominant market share in Middle Eastern markets and will offer Sealegs motorized, retractable and steerable wheeled system as an upgrade option for its entire range of boats from 5.1 meters up to 12 meters and across all sectors, including the recreational marketplace and fast growing commercial and military sectors. ASIS supplies many of the world's military forces with specialized solutions, and the Sealegs technology can be expected to become far more widely available through ASIS.
