The best ice airboat for tackling ice, water and good times

For the knowledgeable, discerning fishing or hunting guide, as well as the remote cabin owner, our 24’ Caravan is designed to be the best ice airboat for safety and comfort. 


Our largest civilian offering, the Caravan is designed for maximum cargo capacity or up to 12 passengers. 
Whether you’re navigating the icy waters of the Great Lakes or maneuvering through inlands to a remote cabin, the Caravan transitions from ice to water with ease.


With multiple layers of reinforced composite and a virtually indestructible layer of UHMW polymer, plus world-renowned for reliability and safety, your 24’ Caravan is designed to be the best ice airboat to meet your needs—year after year. And, it’s tough enough to be struck by anything submerged underwater, even an old sunken boat or automobile.

Powered by a GM 7 liter, 520 hp, LSX, coupled to a century drive CH-3 or the GM 640hp, Lt4, this fast airboat will get you there and back in heated comfort.
