Is it possible to make the best icewater airboat in the world even better?

The short answer is YES, and here is how We did it:

 

First of all, the VBow, Contour Planing Hull, which was designed by a marine architect specifically for ice, water, snow and slush is the best design in the world, so we did not change that. Unlike any aluminum airboat, our boats ride ON TOP of the surface, no matter what that surface may be.

Since relocating 1000 Island Airboats, We've spent tons of time and resources making noticeable improvements and upgrades:

  • We have developed an even stronger but lighter hull than all previous models. ​

  • With new innovations in electronics, we completely updated the electronics

    • Upgraded to Self Monitoring Battery System​

    • Wiring System Is professionally made, with marine grade waterproof wiring, every wire labeled for easy trouble shooting or adding of components

    • Glass Ray-marine Engine Monitoring System and Navigation

    • LED Exterior Lighting

    • LED Interior Lighting

    • LED Upgraded Backlit Labeled Cockpit Switches

  • We went from the GM 502 and now use the EPA COMPLIANT GM 520 HP,  LSX or GM 640 HP LT4 engine in ALL new airboats.

  • Ice brake now seconds as a lifting jack with a push of a button, for when the hull freezes to the ice.

  • Suspension seats are now standard in all our boats

  • We have taken some of the optional features, such as the davit crane, and made it standard on all 24 Search and Rescue airboats.

  • 6 foot Cage Access doors are now Standard on both sides of fan cage for easy engine access. 

  • Upgraded propellers for more thrust and less noise

  • Upgraded Magna flow Muffler system which has cut the engine noice by half.

  • Completely new trailers designed for easy loading, hauling, and unloading by a single person. Included in purchase of airboat.
