When the new Republic Seabee amphibian was introduced to the public in November 1944, she quite naturally also attracted huge interest from potential customers outside the USA.  Many countries around the World had very few airports, but large bodies of water that could be used by seaplanes and amphibians like the Seabee.  Soon Seabee dealerships were established in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Norway, Sweden and Uruguay, to mention a few.

The below list of RC-3 Seabee amphibians originally exported from manufacturer Republic Aviation Corp., is based on a Republic Seabee Deliveries list made by RAC early 1948.  This list was kindly made available from the collection of Mr. Robert Porter, WA, through Mr. Steve Mestler of International Republic Seabee Owners Club (IRSOC).

Mr. Steve Mestler generously has made this list available to the author of this website ( www.seabee.info ).  Thank you very much, Steve, for your kind support!

Registration numbers marked with an asterix (*) are from other sources than RAC Delivery List, mainly from 1981 Air Britain "Archive" Republic Seabee Production List and from other Air Britain publications.

Special thanks to: John Davis, Tony Morris, David Partington, Malcolm Fillmore, for supplying some of the most difficult-to-get information!
