TV survivalist Bear Grylls will use the Sealegs 7.7m to access his private island

The PSP Southampton Boat Show got a surprise visit from TV survivalist Bear Grylls on Saturday when he cruised into the show in his very own Sealegs 7.7m amphibious RIB.

Grylls took delivery of the unique wheeled RIB a few weeks ago, and will use it to access his private island off the North Wales coast.

Crowds quickly gathered to see the star, who not only owns a Sealegs RIB but recently launched his very own range of tough, go-anywhere inflatables.

Salterns brokerage manager Russell Hayden said: “Bear absolutely loves the boat and it’s the ideal solution to his requirements. With Bear’s background it was easy to see why this was Bear’s craft of choice.”

Grylls bought the 7.7m Console version of the RIB, but you can see Motor Boat & Yachting’s test of the Cabin version below.
