The “North 650” airboat is the model of a boat that has become popular among our customers, which is able to carry at least 1.5 tons of payload and comfortably accommodate 6-8 people on board. Before making a choice between the modifications of the “Sever” or “Phantom” airboat, our consumer needs to decide on the purpose of acquiring the equipment and prefer either a passenger or a freight option.
If you like a big friendly company and relax in comfortable conditions, then the “North” is your choice, since most of the hull of this model is occupied by the passenger compartment – the cabin, and everything is provided for comfortable seating: large soft seats, waterproof and Easily removable awning, allowing due to large transparent windows to contemplate the beauty of the surrounding nature.
The North model airboat comply with all generally accepted safety standards and standards, therefore they are completely suitable for purchase by state institutions: nature reserves, national parks, environmental organizations, emergency services, GIMS, etc., for each of which we equip the boat with everything necessary, taking into account the specifics of their activities and personal wishes.
Inside the cabin of the “North 650” are two rows of seats: soft seats for the driver and passenger – in the front row, a spacious passage and a spacious soft solid seat in the second row. If desired, the second row of the passenger compartment can be equipped with additional side soft seats and thus create the possibility of accommodating 6 people. The capacious lockers under them will solve the issue of transporting small-sized personal belongings. In the fully laid out form, soft seats will create a full-fledged sleeping place for 2-3 people. In the bow of the airboat “North 650” there is a large covered luggage compartment with roller shutters. Cabin and luggage compartment decks have a non-slip coating.
When creating airboats, we tried to take into account the wishes of many of our customers and combine: speed and safety, ease and carrying capacity, functionality and comfort.
Having decided on the choice of the model of airboat, you can consider various options for improving it and expanding its capabilities. To your attention we are ready to offer such additional options as: fuel tank increase, electric winch installation, high-quality optics, interior lighting, additional battery, stand-alone interior heater, navigation equipment and much more.
The purposes of exploitation of the aircraft can be very diverse, that is why we practice an individual approach to each customer and are ready to improve and modernize the equipment according to your desire.
We are ready for the most non-standard solutions. For example, at one of the models of the Sever airboat, at the request of the customer, a marine radio tape recorder was installed, waterproof speakers and speakers with a total power of 1200 W and a multimedia center were built.
With non-standard bundles, individual projects, the introduction of new technologies in our airboat, you can learn more in the section of “modernization . “
Choosing Premium class airboats, you will feel a new taste of life and significantly expand your horizons!
The construction of the “North 650”
The design of the boat is a combination of an all-welded aluminum hull, and an inflatable body located under it, which in turn is a kind of shock absorber for softening impacts when moving on obstacles protruding from the water or ice hummocks. It is the inflatable body that takes over all the destructive bottom impact loads, absorbs the impact and, after passing through the obstacle, restores its original shape.
The inflatable boat hull is made of high-strength synthetic fabric with a double-sided polymer coating of PVC with the addition of thermoplastic polyurethane. Applied fabric is environmentally safe, wear-resistant, has high climatic and strength characteristics.
The bottom of the boat is protected by polymer scales, which adequately withstand both temperature changes and mechanical impacts. Scales are polymeric plates, each of which is attached with a cord to the bottom of the boat overlapping each other, in general forming a multi-stage protection of inflatable cylinders. When moving along boulders protruding from the water or ice, each plate is elastically deformed and bends, damping (damping) and evenly distributing the load throughout the bottom of the boat. Each scales, in addition to the protective function, performs the role of a transverse version and ensures high speed performance for the aerodrome.
A bulwark with a loose bar along the entire perimeter is a side protection of the boat. The water that comes on board flows into special barred holes in the aluminum casing. Cylinder pumping valves are located in easily accessible places throughout the boat’s hull.
Windproof console, dividing the body into the passenger and luggage compartments, is an aluminum structure with two frontal, two side windows “Triplex”, with a door in the middle.
The standard equipment of the boat includes: two soft chairs to the left and right of the cockpit entrance, a solid soft seat behind the seats, an all-welded fuel tank with a capacity of 200 liters under the solid seat, a glove compartment in front of the passenger seat, a dashboard with a steering column, a front luggage compartment.
In the rear part of the aircraft there is a propeller-driven unit, which is a single assembly unit consisting of an aluminum all-welded fence for the screw and a longitudinal-transverse motor tar, on which an engine is fixed using shock-absorbing silent blocks. The engine is equipped with a reduction gearbox, on the flange of which the air screw is fixed. Two vertical keel (steering) controls are located behind the screw. Batteries are installed in front of the fence in special plastic boxes.
Engine and gearbox
On the airboat “North 650” you can install one of two engine models to choose from:
Toyota 1UZ-FE VVT-I Engine Chevrolet LS-3 Engine
Power: 290 HP Power: 430 HP
Volume: 4000 cm3 Volume: 6200 cm3
Maximum Speed: Up to 120/150 km/hr
Fuel Consumption: 25-50 l/h
Drive from the engine to the propeller is carried out through the lowering, single-stage, cylindrical, helical gear reducer. The gear housing is made of high-strength aluminum alloys. The gears undergo chemical-thermal treatment and rolling, have high wear resistance and strength. The connection to the motor shaft is via an elastic coupling that is integral with the flywheel.
