Shallow water mud boats aren’t exactly known for their record breaking speed. The Swamp Shark is here to completely change that.
Swamp Shark offers many advantages over typical propulsion systems. It’s this system that allows it to tear across shallow and muddy water at incredible speeds – the 550 horsepower and 1,250 ft. lbs. of torque produced by a Corvette engine don’t hurt either.
The propulsion system offers the power of an airboat with the precision of an outboard, all without getting hung up on vegetation.

We gotta get us one of those!
Here’s how their patented rebound propulsion system works:
The Swamp Shark propulsion system consists of several key components: A CNC-cut, machined-steel surface drive; internal/external hydraulic Rebound System; and a specialized internal cooling system, all of completely original design. The patented Rebound System, which consists of actuators inside and outside of the vessel, allows the Swamp Shark drive to smoothly and automatically adapt to conditions. When the drive impacts a solid object, such as a log, stump, or other submerged hazard, it swiftly and smoothly “kicks up” so that the propeller will not be impacted (the leading edge of the skeg features a special radius designed to facilitate quick and smooth passage over any objects it encounters). The Rebound System then exerts reverse pressure to instantaneously return the drive to its normal trim position as soon as the object has been cleared.
Available in multiple sizes and setups, we don’t know which one we want exactly but we know we want it!
