Salterns Brokerage, the Sealegs UK Dealer, wow the crowds at the 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show

Salterns Brokerage, the Sealegs UK Dealer, wow the crowds at the 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show.

The 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show, which ran from Friday 14th until Sunday 23rd September, witnessed the launch of many new boats on display for the first time in the UK to the eagerly awaiting press and public. But perhaps the most visited stand of all was the Sealegs Amphibious Craft, where Salterns Brokerage displayed three revolutionary RIBs. The line up included the original and iconic 7.1m RIB along with a world exclusive of Sealegs’ two brand new models; the Sealegs 7.7m Cabin and the 7.7m Wide, both of which were sold at the show.

Sealegs, which was represented at this year’s show by the new UK Dealer Salterns Brokerage, was a huge show favourite. Large crowds gathered at the Sealegs stand watching with baited breath as they witnessed the unthinkable… a RIB driving out of the water on wheels. The Sealegs 7.1m RIB was helmed by Salterns’ James Sydenham who expertly manoeuvred the RIB on to the floating pontoon repeatedly to rapturous applause. 

For anyone wanting to view the new Sealegs 7.1m RIB you can do so by visiting our showroom at Salterns Marina, Poole which is open 7 days a week. The Sealegs showroom is next door to Salterns Brokerage’s office and the address you will need is 40 Salterns Way, Lilliput, Poole, Dorset, BH14 8JR.

History of Sealegs

Designed and manufactured in New Zealand, Sealegs is a revolutionary patented concept in the powerboat market specifically designed and developed to take the hassle out of the boat launching and retrieval process. The Sealegs system consists of motorised, retractable and steerable wheels which are fitted to specially designed boats to give users a fully integrated, turn-key package. The boat can then be driven down a slipway or beach straight in to the water with all the passengers staying onboard. When ready to return the wheels simply retract down and the boat is driven out of the water and back up the slipway or beach.

For further information on the Sealegs range, or to view the Sealegs in our new showroom, please contact Salterns Brokerage on +44 (0)1202 707222 or email info@salterns.co.uk
