Gibbs Amphibians introduces Phibian high speed amphitruck

24 Feb 2012

Equipped with Gibbs Amphibians’ proprietary High Speed Amphibian technology, Phibian joins Humdinga in the Gibbs Amphibians commercial portfolio, two new amphitrucks capable with many uses including military and rescue roles.

Phibian is an entirely new type of amphibious truck. Constructed primarily of carbon fiber, it is a multi-mode, multi-mission, high-speed amphibian that offers off-road capability on land. When Phibian transitions from land to water, the wheels retract and its dual jet propulsion provides water performance equal to that of purpose-built patrol and rescue boats. The transition from road to water takes less than 10 seconds.
