This is the Sealander. It’s a nearly 900-pound caravan with a waterproof chassis made from reinforced plastic and fiberglass. This thing is also equipped with an electric motor that’s capable of propelling it in the water at speeds of around 5 MPH. With that in mind, it’s definitely designed to be more of a relaxing cruising vessel than a souped-up speedboat. It’s a sweet little pod, that’s for sure. Built for comfort and not speed.
We all love camping and boat trips, so why not combine the two? That’s what German designer Daniel Straub decided to do with the Sealander, and we’d say he definitely delivered.
As you can see from the above video, the vehicle isn’t for someone who’s looking to slum it during that camping experience. It may be small, but inside and out, this easily-towable amphibious caravan is one seriously sleek vessel. For $17,502, you can buy the basic version of the Sealander, while the standard version will run you $19,447. Just take a look at some of the comfort enhancements that come with this thing.
