Since the first elec­tric Sealegs in 2001, the com­pany has been con­tin­u­ally de­vel­op­ing and re­fin­ing elec­tric am­phibi­ous tech­nol­ogy.

The Sealegs Elec­tric E4 is an all-new 7.1m model which com­bines the lat­est ad­vances in lithium bat­tery and brush­less elec­tric hub mo­tor tech­nol­ogy with 15 years worth of Sealegs’ am­phibi­ous marin­i­sa­tion know-how.

Pow­er­ful, high-torque, hub-mounted brush­less elec­tric mo­tors ef­fort­lessly move the Sealegs Elec­tric craft out of the wa­ter, up beaches and through dif­fi­cult ter­rain. A high-den­sity 7.5kw lithium bat­tery de­liv­ers up to 20 re­turn launch and re­trieve jour­neys on land between charges.

A built-in mains charger and re­gen­er­a­tive brak­ing take care of charg­ing and me­chan­i­cal backup safety brakes are in­te­grated into the hub mo­tors.

The sleek and mod­ern 7.1m Sealegs Elec­tric E4 fea­tures a fu­tur­is­tic ‘glass bridge’ flush-mounted con­sole dash with dig­i­tal switch­ing of lights and other on­board elec­tri­cal func­tions. An in­no­va­tive lay­out has seat­ing for eight with a pic­nic/work­sta­tion ta­ble and a daybed sun-lounger in the bow.

See the fourth gen­er­a­tion Sealegs Elec­tric craft at the Auck­land on the Wa­ter Boat show, Septem­ber 27-30.
