Sealegs adds Florida dealer

Sealegs is teaming with National Marine Suppliers in a strategic alliance designed to allow the New Zealand-based amphibious-boat builder to further enter the yachting world.

A Sealegs boat can transform itself from an all-terrain vehicle to a powerboat at the push of a button. The boats can drive on land as well as in and out of the water, and their amphibious capabilities complement world-cruising yachts.

National Marine Suppliers, based in Fort Lauderdale, said it has been in business for more than 20 years, working alongside yacht owners, captains, crew and management companies. The company said it covers every aspect of the yachting industry, from new build, engineering and deck expertise to logistics of dockage and fueling.

“National Marine has trusted relationships with thousands of yacht owners all around the world and Sealegs is the perfect tender for many of these luxury superyachts. Together I’m sure we can achieve a lot,” Sealegs co-founder David McKee Wright said after the agreement was made final. “Having a showroom in Fort Lauderdale will give Sealegs its first point of presence in South Florida, which will provide potential customers a location to view the product.”

National Marine Suppliers has a facility with more than 100,000 square feet. The company will have a Sealegs there so customers can experience the boat firsthand.

Sealegs will be showcased Oct. 31-Nov. 4 at the National Marine booth at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and there will be interactive demo opportunities in the water.
