Was there any example in canon or legends showing a landspeeder moving over any body of water or swamp? Or any other vehicle that implemented repulsors like the AAT.

    no, you'd need waterspeeders – Edlothiad Mar 3 '17 at 1:07
  • @Edlothiad - shame on you for not knowing the difference between a landspeeder and a speederbike. – Tim Mar 3 '17 at 1:35
  • @Tim hmm – Edlothiad Mar 3 '17 at 1:44
  • @Edlothiad - that would be a landspeeder, yussis. Speederbikes are what they ride through the forest of Endor. – Tim Mar 3 '17 at 1:47

Yes

Though some of the answers depend on if you would allow airspeeders, they use repulsor lift they just fly higher.

GAR Infantry Support Platform AKA Swamp Speeder

Swamp Speeder

The Swamp Speeder as the name suggests is a repulsorlift vehicle that hovers over swamps, modeled after a fan boat by designer TJ Frame.

It can be seen in Revenge of the Sith operating on Felucia, a tropical jungle world.

In addition to other examples, in Episode I we see two land speeders floating in Theed once Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon surface (3 minutes 30 seconds).

They look exactly like some of the models we see later in the movie on Tatooine. They seem to not only be able to hover on the water, but in some cases, float when parked.

On the same planet, there are Gondola Speeders, only seen once in the movie. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Gondola_speeder
