Aquada crosses channelThe Quadski utilizes the same high-speed technology found in the Aquada, an amphibian "leisure vehicle" launched by Gibbs in 2003. Simply press a button and drive into the water. The wheels automatically rise, and as you press the accelerator, nearly a ton of thrust pushes the Aquada onto the water surface. The whole process takes less than 12 seconds, the company says.
The Aquada set the world water speed record for crossing the English Channel.
Aquada and waterskiier
The Aquada enters the water via beach, boat ramp, slipway or directly from the water's edge. It is strong enough to tow a waterskiier.
The Humdinga by Gibbs was designed to access remote and hostile terrain. The company says the vehicle can comfortably transport five people complete with luggage and supplies.
