Utilized in sensitive wetlands, airboats are built to have minimal impact on the environment. Constructed of aluminium with an exterior polymer hull, these boats have little effect on aquatic and marsh vegetation.
Airboats provide a stable working platform and enable personnel and valuable equipment to operate in otherwise inaccessible environments.
Below are a few examples demonstrating the versatility of airboats, employed in diverse regions such as Alaska, Nigeria, Venezuela and the Sudan.
Airboats are equally at ease in polar conditions including ice, snow and drift ice, as well as tropical environments with shallow waters, fast floating debris and dense aquatic vegetation.
They provide safety even when encountering wildlife – both to humans and animals.
