There is one on mill bay beach & for the job in hand it is great!
Parked up out side your house on the beach any time of tide just drive it down the beach in the water & your off! No need for a tender or mooring!
It would make life a lot easier at some where like Bembridge as you would not have to watch out for low tied looking you out from getting home!

Well made aluminium hulled boats with great engineering - but for a niche market!

A chap I knew had one in Alderney, perhaps the ideal place to have one.
After running around on the sea and driving it up on sandy beaches, he would then run it down to the sea, at any stage of the tide, and drive her home. Having reached the harbour he would then start the drive legs engine, drive it up the slipway and along the road to his house where he would park it on his drive. This way no need to unload gear, waterskis etc. until you reach home. Oh, and Alderney police are a little more relaxed about that sort of thing.
Neat.

There are still two here A blue hulled one and a grey version.

They are certainly ideal for the location, as you say.
