Gibbs Amphibians (Gibbs), in partnership with Madaeen Al Doha Group, showcased high-speed amphibious vehicles Humdinga and Aquada at the Katara Beach.

“We will be exhibiting the Humdinga at Milipol Qatar, the 12th International Exhibition of Internal Security and Civil Defence 2018,” Gibbs Sports Amphibians chairman Neil Jenkins told Gulf Times.

Milipol Qatar, under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is scheduled to take place from October 29 to 31 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Gibbs will also be holding several free demonstrations at Katara, both on land and water, after the exhibition.

The Humdinga, primarily directed towards corporate and government customers, can carry up to nine passengers, with the signature Gibbs central driving position and a tonne in payload.

The amphibious vehicle reaches speeds of 40mph on water and over 80mph on land, with twin Gibbs proprietary water jets and 4WD.

Gibbs has locations in the UK (Nuneaton) and New Zealand, utilising engineers and expertise from both countries to continue developing High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology and the vehicles designed around it.

“For the Qatari market this is perfect, you have a long coastline and with the 2022 FIFA World Cup these vehicles have a unique capability to be able to patrol on land and water,” Jenkins added.
