Sirocco presents new model Sealegs and Brig at SCIBS

Thursday, 06 April 2017

 

Sirocco Marine North will be part of a national contingent of dealer principals attending the 29th Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 25 to 28 May on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

New in 2017 is the Sealegs 7.7m Sport D-Tube, ideal for the coastal lifestyle, adventure nomads, anglers and those living and FNQ or regions where there is challenging terrain, crocs and reefs.

Designed and built in-house by Sealegs, the new 7.7m Sport D-Tube joins the company’s popular 6.1m model in the D-Tube range. The new larger model will appeal to those who want more volume in their amphibious craft, coupled with additional features to make it an all-round for exploration and angling.

The 7.7m Sport D-Tube measures in at 7.8m in length overall with the wheels up, and has an external beam of 2.26m. The 5mm aluminium hull has a 21 degree deadrise, and features six aluminium chambers making the craft very stable, buoyant and virtually unsinkable.

Fishos will love the open layout of the 7.7m Sport D-Tube and its ability to access remote and shallower waters, using the Sealegs system to navigate their way to the desired spot no matter what the tidal condition.

The unrivalled space in the helm area and the high cockpit sides mean you will be able to land even the largest fish securely.

Like all Sealegs craft, the 7.7m D-Tube is powered by Sealegs patented Amphibious Enablement System, or AES. The AES, including a fully marinised system of hydraulically powered legs and wheels, is powered by a marinised 22HP inboard engine. The fully integrated, turn-key package uses the same fuel source as the outboard, and is simple to learn and engage.

Designed to be rapidly deployed, the 7.7m Sport D-Tube can be driven from a storage location or trailer, down a launching ramp or beach and into the water – all with the occupants staying in the boat and remaining completely dry.

The 21 degree, 5mm aluminium constructed hull is rated from 150hp-200hp outboards. With a 200hp engine, the 7.7m Sport D-Tube will achieve 38.5 knots.
