Hi Tech Internationals airboats are flat-bottomed vessels propelled forwards by an aircraft-type propeller and powered by an aircraft or alternatively an automotive engine. The engine and the propeller are enclosed in a protective cage that prevents objects, e.g. tree limbs, branches, clothing, beverage containers, or wildlife, from coming in contact with the whirling propeller, thus avoiding damages to the vessel and traumatic injuries to operators and passengers. Steering is accomplished by forced air passing across vertical rudders. Airboats do not have brakes and are incapable of travelling in reverse.

The characteristic Hi Tech International flat-bottomed design of the airboat, together with the fact that there are no operating parts below the waterline, permits the vessel to be easily navigated through shallow swamps and marshes, in canals, rivers and lakes as well as on frozen lakes. The airboat's design makes it the ideal vessel for flood and ice rescue operations, because of the Teflon® liner which protects the hull against damage and abrasion. The closed cell filling and the aluminium sandwich construction of the hull ensure self floating with any weather and sea condition. The sound produced by an airboat's propeller and engine can be loud; the majority of the sound is produced by the propeller. Hi Tech International has significantly reduced the sound that the airboat produces through new designs and modern technology. In fact, the airboats engines are equipped with mufflers and multi-blade carbon-fibre propellers that greatly minimise the sound emitted by the airboat. Sizes are available from 10 to 45 feet with 4 strokes Euro 4 motors, diesel or gasoline. Many optionals are available including: air conditioning, night visors, plotter, radars, searching lights, gps, satellite communication systems, internet, please do not hesitate to ask. Your commitment is our success.
