Diamondback Airboats has built and donated a one-of-a-kind airboat to be auctioned off at the National NRA Foundation Banquet and Auctionduring the 2013 Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas.

The NRA-themed airboat features an 8 foot by 20 foot aluminum hull with a ¼-inch layer of polymer attached to the bottom for extra durability, and a Pleasurecraft 550 HP 6.2L supercharged engine. It also features a custom-themed wrap along the hull designed by Diamondback.

The boat is equipped with a Dual Selector Switch powered by Optima batteries, a 50-gallon remote fill fuel tank, custom center slanted instrument panel with ultra lite autometer gauges, and 1700 GPH Bilge Pump and Cerakoted exhaust. It also has four stainless-steel pull-up cleats, side by side operator seating, front passenger seating and a Sony radio with four Wetsound speakers, amp and subwoofer.

The custom Diamondback airboat will be auctioned live on May 2, 2013, and will be located at booth 4905 during the show for attendees to photograph. Also in attendance to answer questions will be Bobby Fleckinger, builder and President of Diamondback Airboats.
