SEALEGS INTERNATIONAL Limited has just expanded into another new factory on Auckland’s North Shore.

The new 2,800 square metre factory adds to the three other existing premises Sealegs' already has in Parkhead Place, Rosedale giving a total of 10,000 square metres of manufacturing space for Sealegs workforce of more than 80 full-time staff.

The new factory allows all the Sealegs development, manufacturing and assembly to be completed in one location. This also provides a single destination to view all the different production stages providing an opportunity for Sealegs customers to become involved in the purchasing and production process of their new amphibious boats.


SEALEGS INTERNATIONAL has announced its dealer partner of the year for 2021. In a zoom call Sealegs CEO David McKee Wright declared Salterns Brokerage the global winner for 2021.

Salterns is situated in Poole Harbor, Dorset and provides a full range of services to over 150 Sealegs customers in the UK and Ireland. They recently delivered Bear Grylls his third Sealegs and the 1500th boat for Sealegs. Salterns have grown sales over 150% in the last 12 months.

Bear Grylls said "Thank you Russell for such a thorough and care-filled job, helping us customise our island Sealegs. From design to delivery, always a pro!”

Sealegs and Salterns are planning the commercial release of the Sealegs electric range in the UK, in time for the Southampton Boat Show. Salterns have demonstrated the demand for Sealegs in the UK, and the addition of the Sealegs electric amphibious craft will further amplify their success.
