Because of the demand for reliable Ducks for tour service, and because of the limited supply of Government built vessels, new amphibians are in development or have recently been built. Competing firms in the U.S. and in Australia have constructed units out of aluminum or fiberglass.
Buyaduck.com recommends only one unsinkable. It is an all aluminum, 49-passenger, street legal, U.S. Coast Guard certified amphibian.
This amphibian embodies all aspects of current technology. For example, the unique design provides the vessel with a positive displacement foam flotation system that will make the vessel float upright and on top of the water even if you pull the plugs out of the bottom. This vessel could have a hole in the bottom of it 2 foot square and she will still float. This is because the flotation foam is compartmentalized and encapsulated in aluminum.
The American National Transportation Safety Board (N.T.S.B.) has formally commended the manufacturer: … “Thank you for your proactive action regarding amphibious vessel safety. The Safety Board commends your leadership in the recreational amphibious vehicle industry.”
This amphibian is currently in use worldwide.
Used unsinkable’s, when available are listed on the inventory page.
