The Republic Seabee amphibian is the perfect air transport in any countries that have long coast lines, many islands, many lakes and large areas of wilderness.  The Seabees quite naturally became very popular in the USA and Canada.  Seabees were also exported in numbers to countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, England, France, India, Mexico, Norway, Sweden and Uruguay.

During the production of the Republic Seabee, more than 100 Seabees were delivered from manufacturer Republic Aviation Corporation (Long Island, New York) to customers outside the USA and Canada.  Dealerships were established in Brazil, Cuba, Panama, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Fiji, New Caledona, South Africa, England, Norway, Sweden.
