24' Search and Rescue

The 1000 Island 24’ Search & Rescue model is the worldwide standard of excellence in the ice-water and flood rescue airboat market. Powered by a GM 7 liter, 520 hp, LSX coupled to a Century Drive CH-3, or a GM 640 hp  LT4. This boat is designed to ensure that the rescuers never have to be rescued. Eighteen layers of our reinforced composite married to a virtually indestructible layer of UHMW polymer assures you of “mission accomplished“ every time. The hull is designed to handle the rigors of ice travel as well as strikes from underwater objects such as fire hydrants or submerged automobiles. Rated for five foot seas in open water, our Search & Rescue boat is designed to effortlessly transition from open water to ice and back again. Because our hulls are non-metallic, it is an excellent choice for keeping your crew safe when power lines are down. Unparalleled stability and lower aft gunwales make rescue or recovery easy. The boat is heated or air conditioned depending on your need and our list of rescue options such as seating, lighting, communications, and dive operations is extensive. Your 1000 Island Airboats representative will be happy to help you customize your boat.
