Gibbs Adds Two-Seater To High-Speed Amphibian Range
Gibbs Sports Amphibians, founded by New Zealand entrepreneur Alan Gibbs, has added a new high-speed model to the company’s impressive range of amphibious vehicles.
The Gibbs Quadski XL model will be added to the lineup for 2014.
The Quadski XL seats two, is nearly a foot longer, and offers increased storage capacity.
“The new Quadski XL expands the envelope of go-anywhere recreation with an even greater capacity for freedom, flexibility and fun,” notes Noel Lane, president and CEO of Gibbs Sports Amphibians.
Lane said market research showed the two-seater would reach a larger range of perspective buyers and dealers.
“Our dealers are excited about the addition of the XL to their high-speed amphibian line-up.”
The 2014 Quadski and Quadski XL also feature larger hood-mounted air scoops that boost engine cooling and overall performance, along with new, more resilient front bumper systems.
“The Quadski is the result of millions of research dollars and years of development work in the U.S., the U.K. and New Zealand,” says Alan Gibbs, founder of Gibbs Technologies and Gibbs Sports Amphibians.
“Quadski represents an entirely new form of transportation. It is the only sports amphibian of its kind in the world.”
Gibbs notes that his companies have more than 300 patents and patents pending on Gibbs technology and have invested more than $220 million in product and technology development.
“Bringing the Quadski to market in the U.S. over the past 18 months has been a long, uphill battle, but clearly worth the effort,” Gibbs adds.
“We expect the Quadski to pave the way for a host of other Gibbs amphibians that are in our pipeline and designed for consumers, sports enthusiasts, law enforcement agencies and first responders in the years to come.”
Gibbs Sports Amphibians Inc. is the world’s leading manufacturer of personal sports amphibians.
