This very unique recreation vehicle “is as comfortable on the lake as it is on the land with a highway speed of up to 80 mph and up to 7 knots on the water,” according to Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International.
Since 1999 this South Carolina firm has been manufacturing custom amphibious vehicles for both the commercial and recreational markets with units operating in 17 countries around the globe. (Their Amphibious Responder is a search-and-rescure vehicle designed for emergency disaster situations.)
What is really cool about this amphibious rig is that the “padded leather dash (pictured at left) resembles an aircraft’s cockpit with its many instrument gauges amd system controls. An on board computer docking system with internet access, GPS, moving maps, and navigational charts are standard equipment.”
No price tag is listed on the CAMI website. However, the GVWR is 33,000 pounds and the GCWR tips the scales at 41,000 pounds.
