The Isles of Scilly Boat Hire Company are pleased to offer you a unique opportunity to enjoy the Sealegs 7 .7m Amphibious Rib – the ultimate boating solution for waterside properties.

The Sealegs Rib drives on land, and once in the sea, the push of a button swiftly transforms into a very capable and comfortable powerboat on the water, allowing you the freedom and ease to visit all the islands by simply driving up onto the beach without worrying about tides or getting wet feet!

Designed to maximize deck space and recreational versatility so you can comfortably share this invigorating experience with your family and friends.

Suitable for 8 people it’s perfect for exploring the hidden coves and secluded beaches that the islands have to offer.

Only Sealegs gives you the freedom and ease to drive your boat in and out of the water. It’s a unique and exhilarating experience that will leave you breathless from excitement, not from effort.

Powercat 525

Spend a day relaxing on the water with family and friends or open the throttles for a day of fun; whatever you choose the Powercat is second to none.

Swim, fish, water-ski, explore – no matter what you want to do – Powercat is the answer. And if you see a deserted beach that you want to take a closer look at, simply beach the Powercat, thanks to the reinforced keel with full-length stainless steel keel bands.

Just as at home on the open ocean as it is exploring Scilly’s many Islands, the combination of flexibility, performance and safety, make the Powercat 525 the perfect choice for families.

Powercat 525’s twin hull design gives it fantastic stability and fuel economy, with a self draining deck means it can be left on a mooring in any weather without filling up. Twin hulls mean more room for family and friends ( sits seven people ) and extremely useful storage space. Quite simply, the Powercat 525 experience is one the whole family is bound to enjoy.
