VIDEO: The World's Fastest Amphibious Car - 'Panther'

Cruise around town in a spacious open-topped Jeep under the warm summer sun, before driving into the azure waters on your dream yacht charter vacation for an adrenaline pumped high-speed ride in the new amphibious car tender, the Panther.

WaterCar’s newest model has broken records to become the fastest amphibious car on the market and allows endless possibilities of fun and adventure for you and your yacht charter guests. Exceptional attention to design and engineering has meant the Panther is capable of high-quality on road, off-road and on-water driving, and it doesn’t matter where you may be anchored.

With wide 30X9.50R15 tires and long-travel suspension the Panther can drive directly in and out of water without requiring a slipway, but instead can enter water at speeds up to 15 mph.

Aside from the technicalities aesthetically the chassis resembles a Jeep CJ-8 and comes in an array of classic vibrant designs. Measuring a little longer than a standard CJ-8, the Panther offers more legroom and exterior space to ensure passengers can fully enjoy her in comfort when she’s at water.

Back to that claim; the fastest amphibious car. With a 3.7litre V6 engine located at the rear with over 300 horsepower, the Panther is capable of reaching speeds over 80mph on the road but most notably hits impressive speeds of 45mph on top of the water. There is easily enough power and speed to pull water skiers and wakeboarders and even enough for barefoot skiers to stand up.

Although the Panther is heavier than other amphibious cars and more suitable for expedition yachts, the popularity of amphibious car-tenders is on the rise for superyachts for both entertainment and performance qualities. The ultra-chic 50m/164ft Perini Navi motor yacht EXUMA boasts her own amphibious car allowing guests to venture into the most remote areas for exploration.
