The Sealander: a caravan and yacht in one

German inventor Daniel Straub has developed a caravan and yacht in one. The Sealander is the perfect pick for surfers wishing to explore offshore surf breaks.

The concept is simple. Drive your car to your favorite surf spot (on the road, the Sealander is registered as a caravan).

Then, push the Sealander into the water (in the water, it is a sports boat).

You're ready to sail away in search of the perfect uncrowded surf spots located somewhere in an outer reef.

The Sealander is equipped with an electric motor that can power the caravan through the water at up to 9 kilometers per hour.

The ultimate amphibious caravan has a waterproof chassis constructed from a single piece of glass fiber and reinforced plastic.

It only weighs 380 kilograms, and it is the next big thing in glamping, i.e., luxury camping.

Inside, beds can be converted into benches, and a table is ready to serve a light surf meal for six people. The aquatic camper can be yours for around $18,000.
