The first store in North America for amphibious boat company Sealegs opens its doors this week in Hingham, Mass.
The New Zealand-based boat company was first introduced to the U.S. market in 2010.
“The Sealegs craft is ideal for handling diverse and difficult coastal terrain,” Sealegs North America vice president Jon Hoflich said in a statement. “And Hingham Harbor is the perfect location for our North American headquarters. In less than an hour, boat enthusiasts from across the country can take a direct ferry from Logan Airport to our private boat launch and tackle sand, rocks, mud and waves on the many nearby coastal islands.”
Established in Auckland seven years ago, Sealegs was voted one of the 100 Best Innovations of the Year by Popular Science in 2010 and was named the grand winner in the recreation category.
