28' River Freighter
Designed with good stability and high payload capacity, the DIB Freighter also features easy portability. The boat derigs to a package measuring 10'2" x 7' x 4' which fits a standard air cargo pallet. The two piece deck/frame nests with the tubes on the top frame.
The inflatable pontoons have five air chambers each. We fabricate the pontoons from 60 ounce per square yard, neoprene-coated fabric. Each tube is assembled of uncured materials, painted to the desired color, and then vulcanized as a unit in our dry-heat autoclave. These inflatable pontoons are easily maintained.
Another feature of the DIB River Freighter is its self-bailing design. This design provides the capability to perform in rough water and river currents environments. The aluminum deck/frame serves as a stable, rigid working platform. Equipment can drive onto a river freighter outfitted with decks and a ramp. Also, the inflatable pontoon hull allows the boat to work in congested areas without suffering damage when bumped.
