Judging by its rather compact dimensions, we’re not sure it’s fair to describe the Sealander as a ‘caravan’, but we suppose it could sleep a couple of people who are close personal friends and aren’t too bothered about comfort.

What’s more interesting, however, is that the Sealander is more than just a twoish -berth van for pitching up at campsites — back it up to a body of water and it can be slipped straight in for a bit of a seafaring, too.

The Sealander has an integrated waterproof chassis that should (hopefully) keep it completely dry when bobbing about on the water, but there’s also the option of an outboard motor for something other than drifting around when the anchor is weighed.

As silly as the whole thing sounds, the marketing video makes the Sealander look quite compelling for anyone who loves the outdoors and fancies combining two of their favourite pastimes.

Sadly, the Sealander is still at the prototype stage of development, but the two years of testing are almost compete and models are expected to be on sale early next year.

The Sealander’s dimensions are 3890mm long by 1600mm wide and 185mm high, and it weighs 380kg. The price has yet to be fixed, but with a complete kitchen and electric outboard motor, it’s anticipated to be around €15,000 (£13,000).

Keep an eye on the Sealander site if you’re interesting in learning more — it’s in German, but Google Translate makes good sense of it.
