Imagine going where no other tender can take you in comfort, safety and style. A Sealegs Amphibious Tender will take you there.
Sealegs Amphibious RIBS are increasingly popular as yacht tenders, due to their functionality, practicality, robustness and sea-keeping characteristics. The Amphibious Sealegs superyacht tenders provide effortless landing and launching on any beach. The patented Sealegs amphibious system is proven on over 1,300 in 55 countries around the world.
Fully Customised. Fully Capable. The ultimate Superyacht Tender.
The Sealegs amphibious craft are custom-built to match your superyacht. Sealegs pride themselves on crafting the perfect tender for any superyacht, regardless of size or design.
The demand for Sealegs as yacht tenders is growing. Sealegs CEO, David McKee Wright said:
“Each of these deliveries underscores the advantages that Sealegs capabilities provide. They allow luxury yacht owners and their guests to transition seamlessly ashore from their larger vessels, without the need for docks or other coastline infrastructure. This gives superyacht owners unrivalled access to the most remote and secluded beaches”.

Custom paint and tube designs
Specialised fuel reservoirs to meet range requirements
Custom stainless and folding ski towers
Reinforced cleats for bracing in strong seas

Sealegs International is based in Auckland, New Zealand, where the Sealegs concept of amphibious boating was first invented and where they continue to be manufactured. The Sealegs Amphibious boats are sold and used by customers in 55 countries throughout the world.
The Sealegs Amphibious craft have been specifically designed and developed to take all the hassle out of the boat launching and retrieval process. The patented system consists of motorised, retractable and steerable wheels which are fitted to specially designed boats to give users a fully integrated, turn-key package.
These crafts 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 craft is then driven and used as a normal high performance boat.
When approaching land, the Sealegs wheels are lowered whilst still moving in the water. It is then simply a matter of trolling towards the beach, when the Sealegs powerful motorised wheels touch the bottom and drive the craft up onto land. Passengers can then disembark, totally dry and safe.
