Urban : The pedal yacht

  • All-terrain vehicle

  • Secure and easily manoeuvrable thanks to the pedal system

  • Fun and playful in all situation

In 2017, the Urban Concept give way to the Urban.

After months of development, we can finally introduce the evolution of the Urban Concept, which become the Urban. Without fairing, this yacht equipped with a mechanical foot pedal, will bring you wherever you want to go over any terrain, either urban land or natural ones. The pedal system enables you to roll every-time, even if there is no wind at all.

Compared to the previous model, the new Urban works by a system of belt drive (or chain, as you like) and can only be driven by a steering wheel (The Urban concept was driven by a rudder). The yacht is also equipped with a handbrake in order to facilitate stoping.

The previous Urban Concept with the Lycra fairing is not for sale per unit, but still available on quantity sales. See photos of the Urban in the picture gallery.

Why choose the URBAN ?

The Urban is a really safe and reassuring landyacht. Highly manoeuvrable, the Urban is « the future already available » thanks to SEAGULL.

Equipped with system of belt drive, this yacht is constantly moving, even when there is no wind at all. The Urban is accessible to everyone, the practice does not require basic knowledge. It does not need large open spaces to being driven, The Urban goes easily anywhere.

The URBAN’s Strengths

The Urban is an all-terrain vehicle : on land and on sand, on grass fields, parkings, and dirt road ; The practice of land yachting in these spaces is then secured with this kind of kart by a handbrake. You can control your yacht according to your skills : by holding the steering wheel, or with your feet, or both, as you want.

When the yacht stops due to a piloting error or in case of insufficient wind, you have a pedalboard as on a bicycle. This pedalboard was conceived to be sand and water-resistant (belt transmission). In case of skidding or spinning (then the Urban rolls in reverse), the belt system and the pedalboard are automatically released of any applied force, ensuring you that pedals won’t return and hurt you.

The Urban is a very secure and comfortable yacht. Lifting wheel(s) no longer tilts the yacht forward, as in traditional landyachting, but slightly rearward on the side. The seat is then about 20 cm above the ground, so the driver is not ejected, even in case of tipping over.
