Sealegs has recently added the largest RIB to its family – the 12-metre Cabin RIB (12RC).
The craft is beautifully appointed, and stacked with plenty of luxury items including an electrically operated glass divider that allows the operator to open the entire dining area up to the outside, as well as two large, electrically operated, overhead sunroofs. Additionally, the 12RC boasts huge cockpit space; great for entertaining or to fish from. Add to all this the significant convenience of an amphibious system and you have nothing short of a game changer in terms of size, convenience, luxury and of course functionality.
The 12RC measures in at 12 metres in length with an overall beam of 3.6 metres. Power is plentiful and supplied by a pair of Yamaha 425 horsepower V8 outboards all rigged with the latest in integrated electronic steering, coupled with Yamaha’s premium CL7 multifunction display. Advanced ‘drive-by-wire’ throttle controls and Helm Master joystick docking, plus positioning controls create a truly effortless boating experience. As you would expect performance is impressive, achieving speeds of 40 knots.
“The 12RC defines a new standard of luxury and comfort in an amphibious craft. The size of the platform enables customers the freedom to use their Sealegs in near all-weather conditions in style and comfort,” says Sealegs CEO David McKee Wright.
The 12RC is available in several layout options including a galley, up to four berths and a bathroom.
The amphibious enablement system is Sealegs’ proven System 100 kit, based on existing Sealegs patented technology. It is the result of a three-year development project to upscale and commercialise the amphibious capability for much larger professional craft.
