Following the success of the ASIS Amphibious RIBs 7.1 and 6.1m, and in response to popular demand; ASIS just developed, tested and delivered its biggest amphibious RIB ever manufactured yet; A 9.8 meter Black Rigid Inflatable Amphibious boat.

Amphibious RIB Boat

This boat is intended for private use, and will reach its owner in The United States in September.
 
The Sealegs amphibious system available on the ASIS 9.8m RIB consists of motorized, retractable and steerable wheels, powering the boat with off-water capabilities The entire system is marinised and stays completely out of the water while underway. This means there is no compromise to on-water performance.
 
Once fitted with the amphibious technology Sealegs, any ASIS RHIB will be able to travel directly between land and sea by the use of three retractable wheels with a hydraulic system linked to an inboard motor.

Amphibious Craft
Powered by a single 350Hp Mercury, Verado 4 stroke outboard engine, this 9.8m amphibious RIB can reach speeds of up 41 mph when fully loaded. On land, it can travel to up to 10kph.
 
Featuring Hypalon Tubes, 225 L fuel tank and self-draining deck, the Asis 9.8m is also equipped with 4 Ullman Patrol Shock-mitigating Seats designed for additional comfort and lateral stability. The stand-up double center console has a forward seat and the Canopy has a custom 4 sided Canvas/Isinglass seasonal cockpit enclosure that can be added to it.
 
This boat was ordered fully in black, from fiberglass to Tube to Accessories; So all stainless steel and aluminum equipment have been powder coated in black, such as the aft tow post, the forward Samson post and the T Top.
