1000 Island Airboats
The 1000 Island 24’ Search & Rescue model is the worldwide standard of excellence in the ice-water and flood rescue airboat market with 25 years of manufacturing. Powered by a GM (corvette) 7 liter, 520 HP, LSX coupled to a Century Drive CH-3, this boat is designed to ensure that the rescuers never have to be rescued. Multiple layers of our reinforced composite married to a virtually indestructible layer of polymer assures you of “mission accomplished” every time. The hull is designed by a naval architect 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 airboat 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 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.
