Recognizing the potential for amphibian technology, he decided to build a production sports amphibian fully compliant with marine and road regulations.

Alan Gibbs founded Gibbs Technologies in New Zealand in 1996. Initial concept work was undertaken in 1997 and 1998 in Detroit, USA.

In 1999, excited by the technology, Neil Jenkins merged his business to form Gibbs Technologies Ltd UK and became Managing Director.

The project was brought to the UK, the home of niche, low volume car manufacture and Formula 1 engineering. The team was formed that went on to design, develop and deliver the world's first high speed sports amphibian, the Aquada.
