SEALEGS RELEASES EMERGENCY RESPONSE RANGE
Sealegs Corporation has unveiled a special rescue version of its amphibious boats which is purpose-built to meet the demands of rescue services and coastguard agencies, targeted specially at flood rescue and inshore marine applications.
The new 6m and 7m Sealegs models build on the existing range but feature an extended run-time package (XRT) which enables the Sealegs XRT amphibious boats to be run continuously on land or water. This will ensure the product meets the rigorous demands of local and international rescue and emergency agencies.
Sealegs Corporation CEO Mr David McKee Wright says “Sealegs developed this option based on feedback and requests from international rescue organisations. The extended run-time package gives Sealegs amphibious boats the capability to be effectively deployed in very demanding field conditions and has been tested extensively in high ambient temperatures.”
Sealegs Corporation recently announced that it had shipped its 250th Sealegs amphibious boat and has set up a second manufacturing facility in Albany, Auckland.
