Can’t decide between a relaxing river cruise or a rustic, cross country road trip for that upcoming holiday? With the Sealander, you won’t have to, as the fully amphibious vehicle is a trailer, caravan and yacht all in one.
The innovative German-made vehicle has a hull made from glass fibre reinforced plastic, making it lightweight but robust for both terrains. It is modelled on a small camper van, but features an outboard engine that enables it to make the switch from road to sea instantly.
The Sealander has wide windows and a convertible sunroof, as well as a telescopic element that can be used as a swim ladder and a stainless steel handrail to help with boarding, and the benches inside can be used either as seating for up to six people or a large bed. When the windows are closed, the vessel becomes completely weather and waterproof.
Customisation is available upon ordering, enabling customers to choose from a variety of different materials and colour finishes, as well as add-ons such as a fridge, toilet facilities, a gas cooker, a sound system, a retractable external shower, a stainless steel sink and a barbecue.
The Sealander requires no special licence to drive, and currently has retailers in Germany, Canada, Switzerland and Czech Republic. Prices start at just under €16,000 for the basic package, with add-ons costing extra.
More information on the Sealander is available at the official website.
