New amphibian Quadski debuts

ADVERTISEMENT

Michigan-based Gibbs Sports Amphibians has launched what it calls the world’s first high-speed sports amphibian, the GIBBS Quadski. 

The high-speed amphibian (HSA) has a durable, but lightweight composite hull, uses patented water-jet technology, and is powered by a BMW Motorrad engine and transmission.

The new HSA weighs 1,300 pounds, is equipped with a 15-gallon fuel tank and retails for about $40,000.

It was on display in the National Marine Super Yacht Toy Store at the Yacht and Brokerage Show in February.

“Quadski represents an entirely new form of transportation,” said Alan Gibbs, founder of Gibbs Technologies and Gibbs Sports Amphibians. “It is the only sports amphibian in the world capable of reaching speeds of 45 miles per hour on both land and water and can transition between both in less than five seconds.”

The companies have more than 300 patents and patents pending on Gibbs HSA technology representing an investment of more than $200 million and two million man hours of work.
