Military Airboat

STEYR Motors Australia has a strong pedigree in offering power solutions for custom applications including Air or Swamp boats.

By definition, airboats (also known as fan boats), are a flat-bottomed vessel propelled in a forward direction by an aircraft-type propeller and are popular means of transportation in marshy and/or shallow areas where a standard inboard or outboard engine with a submerged propeller would be impractical.

Usually custom designed aluminium applications, the Airboats use STEYR MOTORS Marine diesel engines of up to 280Hp.These can be matched to a CH3 Belt drive and Whirlwind 3 Blade Propeller providing performance and reliability for commercial and military customers.

STEYR MOTORS Australia can also offer customised engineering solutions for these projects including steering, fuel and cooling systems, engine controls and propulsion packages.
