Design 2346 - Beach Support Vehicle (BSV)

This amphibious vehicle looks like a proposal or conceptual package to me. The work was commissioned by Consolidated Diesel in 1978. It looks like a baby D.U.K.W, design #402 (or at least a distant relative). Looking at the plan list (see below) you can see the set of plans from 2346-A through 2346-Y were concept drawings of a variety of different configurations and and four "final plans" were generated. The bottom line is I don't thing any of these vehicles were ever built.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 38'-0"
LWL 35'-9"
Beam 11'-9"
Draft 1'-7"
