High Speed Amphibian capable both off-road and on-water.
UK based Gibbs Amphibians, the world authority on High Speed Amphibians, has been developing High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology for over 20 years, during which the company invested hundreds of millions of pounds and over 3 million man hours in the development and maturation of the technology. Gibbs is the first company in history to successfully create fully homologated vehicles that can exceed 30 mph on water as well as achieve typical speeds on land, transitioning between land and water in under 5 seconds, at the push of a button.
The Humdinga is one of the more rugged vehicles created by Gibbs, capable both off-road and on-water. It can carry up to 9 passengers, with the signature Gibbs central driving position and can carry a tonne in payload. It reaches speeds of 40mph on water and over 80mph on land, with twin Gibbs proprietary water jets and 4WD.
The Humdinga is a 4wd, 7m long, High Speed Amphibian with robust off-road and on water capabilities. It is using a V8 diesel engine driving the wheels and twin Gibbs proprietary water jets.
Gibbs has locations in the U.K. (Nuneaton) and New Zealand, utilising engineers and expertise from both countries to continue to develop High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology and the vehicles designed around it.
The UK based business, founded by Alan Gibbs with Neil Jenkins, has been developing High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology since 1994. Since then it has developed over eight different vehicles ranging from 3m to over 10m within many differing applications, including the record-breaking and award-winning Aquada, the famous Quadski and the robust Humdinga.
