Sealegs Releases World's Largest Amphibious RIB

Sealegs International has today released its newest and largest amphibious rigid inflatable boat (RIB) to date, the Sealegs Interceptor 9000.

The craft is powered by a 300hp Yamaha outboard motor and is fitted with eight Jolt Rider shock mitigating seats. The extra wide three metre beam allows for huge deck space and creates a very stable yet versatile work platform.

Sealegs CEO David McKee Wright said “the Interceptor 9000 gives us a model with the size, passenger count and layout that many commercial and military operators have been asking for in an amphibious craft.  It was developed in response to international sales demand and we’re excited at the sales opportunities this new model will bring.”

He went on to say the craft has been developed using the same Amphibious Enablement Kit available to existing OEM boat builders which demonstrate the versatility of Sealegs technology.

The new Sealegs Interceptor 9000 will be on public display for the first time ever at the Auckland On-the-Water Boat Show from 24th-27th September as part of the Sealegs 10 year celebrations.
