ASIS Boats said the Sealegs amphibious system available on the new RIB consists of motorized, retractable and steerable wheels, powering the boat with off-water capabilities.

ASIS Boats said it has developed, tested and delivered the biggest amphibious RIB that it has ever built.

The company said the 32-foot black RIB is intended for private use and its owner is in the United States.

ASIS said the Sealegs amphibious system available on the new RIB consists of motorized, retractable and steerable wheels, powering the boat with off-water capabilities. The company said the entire system is marinized and stays completely out of the water while underway.

Once fitted with the Sealegs amphibious technology, ASIS RIBs are able to travel directly between land and sea by the use of three retractable wheels, with a hydraulic system linked to an inboard motor.

Powered by a single 350-hp Mercury Verado 4-stroke outboard engine, the new amphibious RIB can reach speeds of as much as 41 mph when fully loaded, the company said. On land, it can travel as fast as 6.2 mph.
