Airborn Boat 

Richard Swan, founder and CEO of AIRBORN™ Inflatable Boats, announced today that AIRBORN will introduce a first of its kind two-in-one fishing boat at booth #1514 at the Las Vegas ICAST /IFTD fishing show, July 9-12.  The new AIRBORN 360 is a high performance fishing boat with a floor that doubles as a removable inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP).

“This design is a game changer in the rapidly growing personal fishing craft market. No need to choose between a Stand Up Paddle Board and inflatable fishing boat. The ‘360’ offers both, making it unique in the marketplace,” said Swan.

What Makes the AIRBORN 360 Unique? 

The AIRBORN 360’s Drop Stitch floor allows two adult anglers to stand up, see fish and cast. Drop Stitch construction is widely used in inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP) and greatly improves stability. It is the Drop Stitch floor that makes the AIRBORN 360 such a stable casting platform. When removed the Drop Stitch floor is a Stand Up Paddle Board. The user can remove the floor, grab a paddle and fish solo. As a SUP the AIRBORN 360 extends the angler’s range to reach even more remote locations and fish in even shallower waters.  It is this two-in-one feature that makes the AIRBORN 360 such a versatile craft.

Highly Versatile

The AIRBORN 360 can be rowed, poled or propelled by a small motor. It can be used on ponds, lakes, Class 2 rivers, protected bays and salt water flats. The lightweight patent pending design floats in less than five inches of water allowing anglers to reach fish that may never have seen a lure. Add the optional rowing frame and anglers can drift fish the most famous slow moving rivers in the world. The rowing frame accommodates an optional 48-quart ice chest creating a comfortable place to sit while rowing or fishing. In addition, the cooler provides a place for food and beverage as well as storage for cameras and other valuable items. Optional rod holders allow rods to be stored or set up for trolling.

Stand Up and Paddle

When the floor/SUP is separated from the boat the floor becomes the AIRBORN 360 SUP - a 10 and a half foot Stand Up Paddle Board that weighs 27 pounds. The 34-inch width and the split tail design makes the AIRBORN 360 SUP one of the most stable paddle boards available. Its inherent stability makes stand up casting easy and its very shallow draft allows anglers to negotiate depths of three inches or less. In addition its lightweight allows users to pack it into the remotest fishing areas. As an added bonus it offers an easy way for the whole family to learn the fast growing sport of paddle boarding.
