The Sealander is powered by 5 horse power electric motor which can run at a top speed of 5.6 miles per hour. It is purposely designed only for or inland waters such as rivers, lakes, reservoirs or any calm body of water.

The amphibious camper’s body is made of fiberglass reinforced plastic with removable roof. The double bottom design prevents the camper from sinking in case of an accidental leak. The Zealander weighs about 1000 pounds and measures 12.8 feet long, 5.25 feet wide, and 6 feet high.

The 2016 standard model will costs $17,000. You may customize its features and designs through add-ons such electronic, living, and marine packages.
