Senator SL 1170 | Senator Boats

World First

Being the largest recreational cabin boat to be fitted with the Sealegs System 100 – a military grade all wheel drive amphibious system – the SL 1170 is the first of it’s kind.

Go anywhere. A truly unique vessel that has broken all the rules in the amphibious category. With an impressive balance of form and functionality, Senator’s SL 1170 will take you there (and back) in comfort, safety and style.
