ASIS Boats announced the completion of the first of the new production series 7.5m Asis RIBs to be equipped with Sealegs System 60 amphibious technology.
 
The 7.5m Asis Midi will include the two-wheel drive and automatic braking systems as well as power steering and high quality, marine-ready Sealegs components.
 
Powered by a 150HP Evinrude E-Tec on the water, the craft reaches speeds of up to 39 knots. Featuring Hypalon Tubes, 180 litre fuel tank and self-draining deck, the Asis 7.5 Midi is also equipped with four straddle style seats designed for additional comfort and lateral stability.
 
It has an overall beam of 2.7m, a height of 2.3m on the wheels and can travel up to 10kph on land. The craft has a payload of 500kg.
 
Sealegs Amphibious Enablement Kits allow boat builders to modify craft to benefit from amphibious abilities. Craft with this technology can travel directly between land and sea by the use of three retractable wheels with a hydraulic system linked to an inboard motor. The entire system is marinized and stays completely out of the water while underway.
