South Africa's AquaQuad received National Marine Manufacturers Association certification for its ELS, CLS and CLX boat models.

“Having NMMA certification is a huge testament to AquaQuad's dedication to boating safety,” CEO Oliver Nudds said in a statement. “We're making strong gains already in the U.S., and now we've just taken another big leap forward. We're very excited to bring our unique watercraft to North American boaters.”

The company is in the last leg of its North American dealer tour, which ends next week at the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla. Boats will be on display and available for demonstrations before, during and after the conference.

AquaQuad's CLS is a rigid inflatable watercraft ideal for personal boating or rental applications. The ELS is electric-powered and suitable for environmentally sensitive applications. The CLX is designed for sportfishing and recreational fishing, the company said.
